But I feel like it could all have been done in 1 year

Is it possible to do the preps and exams in one year? Yes, it is possible. I start prepping March 1st 2012, did Step 1 in September, CK in January and took my last exam (CS) March 1st 2013. My friend did it in 10 months period, and his score is even higher than me. So it is possible.

Sequence to take the exam? Check the thread for this
IMGs: The most appropriate sequence of taking USMLE Steps?

However, that being said, it should depend on your personally. I like the sequence that I did because I believe to do CK, you need background step 1 knowledge, and to do CS you need background CK knowledge.

Having a time table for your preparation is absolutely a necessity, but please note that, you should only take your exam when you are ready regardless of the time. The best way to know when you are ready is NBME. Take the exam when your latest NBME score = your target score.
