Welcome!

Welcome to the USC School of Medicine Library's subject guide for

USMLE Step 1!

This guide is a compilation of library resources to help you prepare for the USMLE Step 1 exam.  Please feel free to leave comments and suggestions, or email me directly. 

The tabs across the top of the page will help you navigate between topics.

Step 1 Practice Test Software

The Step 1 practice test software is available for download and use from USMLE.  In the past, there was not a Mac compatible version of this software.  So we have installed that software on several publicly available PCs in the library.  See Circulation Staff for details.  

AccessMedicine Self-Assessment Tools

The Board Review Plus Area on AccessMedicine provides deep links to self-assessment resources within Harrison's Online, Williams Obstetrics, Hurst's The Heart, and the Lange Educational Library.
