Curriculum Vitae GAP in clinical work

First of all I would like to thank everybody in this awsome forum,from staff to members ,for the awesome advice and support.

I need urgent and sincere advice regarding this issue:

I would like to know if someone after graduation did not do any clinical work and sat home for a couple of months in order to prepare for the USMLEs.Will this affect his application for residency;will this be considered a "Gap" in his clinical experience??
Which is more important ;having great USMLE scores or NOT having this gap??

Any further advice is strongly recommended
