I have been studying off and on during my entire medical school for Step 1; but I actually began sole devotion to studies for Step1 in April. I plan to take my test mid-August. I was wondering, what is the average length of time any of you have studied from the date you began your Step1-studying to your actual test-date? Then again, some of my colleagues who passed have reminded me that it is not only the quantity of studying, but also the quality. In that case, to those of you who have recently passed, would you please shed some insight into the length of your Step1-studying to the date of your exam. Perhaps, your success based on studying length can convey some sense of time-frame for pacing myself and anyone else who can benefit from your answers. Best of luck to all of you. (This is an example of a Cross-sectional study.) :icon_thumb:
