Default Tourist visa for step 1?


I'm new in this forum and I am also new in the process of applying for the residency in USA. I am planning to take step 1 at the beginning of next year. I already have a tourist visa, but I would like to know how long can you stay in the US, because my plan is to do the step 1 and stay there in order to take the other exams while I am there. Is it possible? And if it is possible what do you tell the officer when you enter US, that you are going to take the exam, that you will be staying with somebody...?
