    Hi! I just purchased your step1 deck and saw that it was not comprehensive. Will it still then be a good substitute for the other free decks like bros and lightyear?

      Hi Melody! Thanks for your message. I’d actually question the premise of your question – most students assume that Step 1 is a test mainly of knowledge, which means you should try and find the most “comprehensive” resources. If that were true, then memorizing lots of facts like Bros/Lightyear would be the best approach. However, the NBME has gone on record (numerous times) stating that the test is largely a test of application of concepts. They specifically try to weed out memorizers.

      You can see articles I written on this subject here:
      https://www.yousmle.com/usmle-question-writing-open-secrets/#1_Questions_Test_the_Application_of_Knowledge,_NOT_Recall_of_Facts
      https://www.yousmle.com/question-interpretation/

      The Step 1 deck is designed with the NBMEs stated goal in mind. In other words, the focus is on helping you understand the key concepts for the test, so you can apply them.

      I’d be very cautious of fact-/memorization-heavy decks. Yes, some people have done well and have used the cards. However, I question whether the decks were in fact the cause – see my thoughts here: https://www.yousmle.com/dedicated-study-plan/#3)_Silent_Evidence

      Hope this helps!
      Alec
