|“||These three volumes of Lecture Notes represent a yearlong effort on the part of the Kaplan Medical faculty to update our curriculum to reflect the most-likely-to-be-tested material on the current USMLE Step 1 exam. Please note that these are Lecture Notes, not review books! The Notes were designed to be accompanied|
by faculty lectures—live, on video, or on the web. Reading these Notes with-out accessing the accompanying lectures is not an effective way to review for the USMLE.
