You may be surprised how many things you can use Cram Fighter for. Here’s how subscribing for a 2-year plan can help you as you progress through med school, whether you sign up in your first, second, or third year.

A reliable study plan is an invaluable tool at every stage of your medical school career. With Cram Fighter’s 2-year plan, you will have access to a handy study schedule, no matter how far along in med school you are. Because Cram Fighter supports hundreds of resources for multiple exams, plus creates study plans for med school coursework, you can set up effective study schedules throughout med school. Here’s how students can use our 2-year plan as an M1, M2, and M3.

M1 Students: Ace Your Classes and Get Ready for Step 1

Your first year as a med student is bound to be as exciting as it is stressful, but don’t get discouraged by your med school workload. Start things off on the right foot by using Cram Fighter from day one. With Cram Fighter’s course options, you can set review tasks for your classes and prepare for your exams. At the same time, you can get a head-start on Step 1 by supplementing your coursework with boards resources. Some students have found that their dream score is attainable if you start with just 10 questions from a Step 1 qbank per day during M1.

Most students take Step 1 at the end of M2. So, when you subscribe to the 2-year plan as an M1, you will still have access to our study planner when Step 1 approaches. Create a dedicated study block and tinker with potential study schedules in advance. Then, use Cram Fighter to knock Step 1 out of the park.

M2 Students: Crush Step 1 and Prepare for Step 2 CK and Shelf Exams

Signing up for Cram Fighter as an M2 makes sense. The time is right to get ready for the USMLE Step 1. Consider subscribing for 2 years to get the most out of Cram Fighter at a more cost-effective price than a shorter subscription. After Step 1, your trek through med school is far from over. You can use Cram Fighter to handle multiple Shelf exams during M3, plus Step 2 CK, an exam that may be increasing in importance as Step 1 goes pass/fail.

M3 Students: Breeze Through Rotations and Tackle Step 3

When you use Cram Fighter for Shelf exams and Step 2 CK in your third year of med school, it’s easy to forget that there’s one more exam on the horizon. Subscribing to our 2-year plan will give you the option to study for Step 3 as well. Keep everything in one place with Cram Fighter, and you’ll be ready for your final board exam of med school in no time at all.

Cram Fighter’s 2-year plan is available for just $159 (which works out to about $6.63 per month). It’s our best value and most convenient plan—pay once and use Cram Fighter for coursework and multiple exams for two full years as you progress through medical school.
