Study Schedules are based around topics, resources, and time. You can have multiple schedules at one time.
For example, you can set up one Schedule to review basic sciences and build another for a class exam in organ system pathology.
Schedules are named for the type of studying you’ll be doing. For example, “Dedicated” refers to a 4-6 week time period studying several topics, all day, in preparation for USMLE Step 1, or COMLEX. You can also edit Schedule names at any time.
Ways to use multiple study schedules
Schedule by resource
Each Schedule focuses on one resource (like UWorld or First Aid) so you can manage how many passes you take of that resource. If you want to go over a resource multiple times, like First Aid for example, just add another schedule (and be sure to add that resource to that schedule). After setting your resources, double check to make sure your schedule dates are set.
Schedule by time period
A Schedule can also be based on time periods. For example, if you have a summer break, you can set the dates to be variable or fixed.
Fixed subject dates
This type of schedule has an exact start and end date to a topic. For example: Cardiology Start can start July 1, and end July, 13. Use this type of schedule when you need to cover certain topics by a certain date.
Variable subject dates
This works best if you have a single exam covering multiple topics and the end date matches the end date of the schedule. For example: Your schedule is 24 days long, Cardiology is studied for 14 days, and Renal is studied 10 days. Use this type of schedule when you need to cover multiple topics within a time period.
Schedule by subject
A Schedule can also be based on any one or more subjects. To create a Schedule for basic sciences, you could title it “Basic Sciences” and add in Genetics, and Microbiology. From there you’d simply need to add in the correct dates and resources.
