Do you have any advice about the USMLE?

I'm thinking of applying to take the US Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE). Does anyone who is preparing for, or who has taken the exam, have any advice for prospective entrants regarding:

  • Helpful resources when preparing for the exams
  • Any other useful advice or top tips?
