When is your Step 2CK?
If you are just starting your preparation, subject-wise could be of use, specially if, like me, you are having a very slow start. Hate Cardio

If you already have read MTB2, MTB3, KLN, maybe even FA
The most recommended way to do UWorld is:

It's both studying AND gymnastics for the actual exam. You can know a lot of factoids but you want them available in less than 30 seconds. All of them. You also want to be able to read a clinical vignette quickly and effectively. You train for reading and at the same time probing the depths of your memory for differentials, diagnostic tests and treatments.

It's tough at first, but don't be discouraged. Your brain will learn to reconnect synapses for the task in less than a month of dedicated UWorld.

Do it timed random. Otherwise you will not be able to manage your time in the real exam.
