Flashcards for boards: SketchyMicro & SketchyPharm Anki decks

These are complete SketchyMicro and SketchyPharm Anki decks that I made while I was studying for USMLE Step 1 and COMLEX Level 1! I found that Anki was the best way for me to memorize all of the SketchyMedical sketches. I still remember them all and use this knowledge in my clinical rotations. I’m telling you, Anki = long term memory.

If you don’t know what Anki is or how to use it, you can read about it and download the app here.

To read about how I studied for boards and get all my tips & tricks, check out my blog post here.

About these decks

The cards in this deck contain small, cropped portions of the overall sketch – these force you to focus on all of the small details of each sketch.

Notes with the tag “*edited_by_nicolet.life” are cards for which I added my own memory hook. If you do not want to use these, feel free to delete them by sorting your cards by that specific tag, highlighting all the cards under that tag, and simply deleting them.

Text in grey font is supplemental information.
Text in black font is the most important, high yield information.

    Can I ask what kind of tabs you have on your first aid book. I need some more durable tabs and they definitely look like it.

        Are you unable to download them from the links? Click the link in my blog post and it will allow you to download both decks. You need to have Anki installed to open the files.


    1. Nicolet says:

      You have to have the Anki app already downloaded to your computer. Then, download them from the google drive and open them. They should appear in your Anki app.

    You are totally awesome for sharing these!! Thank you!! ❤

    Any thoughts or resources that you recommend for Sketchy Path? Are you planning on using Sketchy IM?


    1. nicolet.life says:

      You are very welcome!! Sketchy Path wasn’t out when I studied for Step 1, so I never used it since I learned pathology without it. Since I am done with Step 1 and Step 2, I won’t be going back to use Sketchy Path or Sketchy IM and I haven’t looked for any additional resources for them. Apologies, I wish I could help more! ❤ Good luck with your studies!
