Say, you have a cough. Maybe it’s the air, maybe just the
season for infections. You don’t think much of it. After all you’re an adult
and you’ve had infections hundreds of times. It’ll go away. But let’s say it
persists for a day or two. You get a fever too. Your parents worry. Especially
your mom. They go out and buy you medicine if you don’t have it at home
already. They hover over you, pamper you, cater to you. In a few days, you
recover. Everything’s forgotten and you
go back to your happily ever after.

USMLE STEP 1 Experience by Sara Atiq Khan Score 268 (April 2014)
Technically I started studying by mid may 2013, got the books organized and asked around about how to go about scheduling myself. my aim was to give the exam by January or February 2014. the 1st couple of weeks I was very lazy, didn't actually get serious till beginning of June. Started off with physio because it was a weak subject for me having lived through the Prof Akram era, took me about two weeks to do it with lectures. Then I did something easy to give myself a break, did anatomy without lectures, and finished it in about a week.
