As a Caribbean Medical Student, HyGuru really helped me better understand two years of crucial and important material. Rahul’s ability to focus on both your strengths and weaknesses will really helps prepare you for Exam Day. The schedule he lays out for you, as well as the techniques he teaches you, such as “thinking like the test maker” really help you make the clinical connections you need in order to ace Step 1. I started with a score of 179 on my first NBME and my last NBME before I took my exam was a 217. I couldn’t have done it without him.

I’d like to give a huge shoutout to HYGuru for being an incredible tutor, mentor, and support system throughout Step 1 dedicated. I began Step 1 prep with a baseline score of 156 😖 (school CBSE). The past 2 years of medical school have been STRESSFUL. My Dad passed away, and I had health issues that affected my performance significantly. I didn’t have much confidence in myself that I will do well on Step 1, which significantly affected my studying. Then I found Rahul (HYGuru), and l am so GRATEFUL that I did. Within a few weeks, I was passing NBMEs, and within a couple of months, I scored 230 on NBME 22. I improved my NBME scores by 70 POINTS!!! Rahul laid the groundwork for me to approach the exam with a positive mindset. When test day came, I felt ready. During the exam when I felt like a block was too difficult or I was feeling too stressed, Rahul’s sound techniques and strategies made all the difference. The productivity scheduling system on Notion, Rapid Review course, live webinars, and one-on-one sessions was a game-changer. Rahul came prepared to every one-on-one session with an organized and structured plan. He was always understanding if personal issues arose, and made adjustments to my schedule to help me feel less stressed throughout the process. Importantly, he kept in touch between sessions to check on my progress or to see how I’m feeling. He was always available if I needed to talk with him (no joke, he would work night shifts and instead of going home to sleep, he first addressed my needs to make me feel at ease). Rahul’s dedication and compassion to help students excel during one of the toughest periods of medical school has been an invaluable experience that I will hold with me throughout medicine. He is one of a kind!! Thank you times a million. I’ll miss you!!!

A resource that covers all the high-yield information for test day in a way that is easy and efficient to understand. Beneficial for both NBME assessments as well as Step 1. The USMLE study planner is super convenient and easy to use. Saved me a lot of time in making a schedule and also I was able to easily customize it according to which topics needed more of my attention.

Rahul is a very energetic and engaging teacher! I am fortunate to be able to learn from him as part of my medical school curriculum and more recently through his USMLE Masterclass. There are an overwhelming number of resources available for Step 1 content preparation, but I found it hard to know where to find quality information on the more practical aspects of dedicated study like schedule planning and test taking strategies. Unfortunately, most test prep resources you'll find online are well marketed to leverage student stress and anxiety to collect exorbitant fees for what is often generic, impersonal advice. Rahul's USMLE Masterclass was a tremendous value in both the reasonable cost and the degree of personal, student-centered guidance that you won't get any place else. I found this course to be a great supplement to fill in the practical gaps that popular content resources like UWorld, First Aid, Pathoma, Boards & Beyond and Sketchy just don't cover. Rahul's approach to the USMLE will make you a more productive, focused person ready to take on any challenge. The immediate benefits of these skills in terms of NBME preparation are really just an added bonus!

Dr. Rahul’s 2 day masterclass was great! This masterclass provided me with the necessary tools to not only improve my study habits but also how to have a solid mindset when tackling Step 1. Everyone who is studying for CBSE and STEP 1 benefits from this session. I now have better perspective about this exam.

Dr. Damania's 2 day seminar was what i was looking for. It helped me to map out the areas where I seem to be stuck and it provided a clear and direct guide in tackling each of the questions. I would highly recommend to others to try it out!
