MRCP Part 1

I passed the MRCP part 1 in May 2005 in first attempt just after three weeks of study. Here's how I did it.

BACKGROUND
Honours medical student from UK, recently sat USMLE Step 1 and 2. I read some of Kalra when I was a medical student.

EXAM PREPARATION
I studied what other people with very high scores did and I did likewise, hoping to pass. I only had three weeks to prepare and during this time I wasn't working.

1) Did all onexamination.com past questions and made notes on the ones I got wrong.
2) Looked up common topics in Kalra
3) Read entire chapters of Kalra, taking brief notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
YOU DO NOT NEED TO READ BIG BOOKS TO PASS THIS EXAM!!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please don’t waste time reading Kumar and Clarke and Davidson’s. I also had the MRCP Masterclass but did not use it as it was too heavy going. I had a borderline score on my fist attempt at onexamination.com. My score was in the 70's on the second attempt.

WHAT GOT ME THROUGH?

1) On Examination course teaches the common topics and the correct way of thinking
2) I followed the advice of people who did well - so even if I did 50% the same as them, I would probably pass.

Finally, I suggest you learn my 100 commonest tested facts for MRCP part 1, which will speed up the revision process for you all.

Best wishes
