Step 1 Notes 2009

Kaplan Step 1 Notes 2009 edition is now available for all USMLE takers. You can get them (2008/2009) if you are attending the Kaplan Live Center and paid full fee for attendance.

An alternative would be to look for Kaplan Step 1 Notes 2008/2009 edition on Ebay.
Another alternative would be to ask from your friends - some of them might have these new notes already and can share them with you.

If you are constantly on the move - then you might consider getting scanned notes instead of hardcopy notes.

Here is the link to try

USMLE Step 2 Lectures 2008/2009 edition

Many friends asked me about USMLE Step 2 Lectures published in 2008/2009.
Unfortunately, I have not heard of these videos on the grey market. Kaplan Step 2 Videos have been released in 2002/2003. Although some people keep referring to them as 2006 or even 2007 step 2 kaplan lectures, in reality this is 2002/2003 Step 2 Lectures.

On the other side - medicine is not IT science and is not changing every 3 years.
So, stick to whatever materials you have and keep fingers crossed...
Good luck in your Exam!
