Juancaurdaneta ,

One of the best way to study!!

Is the perfect way of passive study and can be used everywhere. You can workout on the gym or going out for a walk and preparing yourself for the step 1 at the same time. Hopefully you can keep doing more of these episodes for every topic

Avneet Arora ,

Excellent resource for step1 prep

It’s an excellent resource to stay connected with the step1 relevant material while I went for a run or walk. That’s the best part- you can listen to anytime anywhere and still feel like you are studying.

abushsanfrancisco ,

Great content!

I work as a security guard while studying for the USMLE. I listen to this audio because it’s allowed to wear earphones where I work. I saved a lot to of time because of this! Thank you!
