Passport Duration of stay and return to US. in the same year?

I am visiting US. on a B1/B2 visa in after a month from now for observership and CS course and exam. I plan to stay 21 weeks there to do those.

After that I plan to come back home at the end of july to continue my work in my home country in the hospital and as a faculty member to then go back to US. at mid October on another VISA for the interviews which are going to take at least till end of January.

Is this OK I mean some people say that if u stay for long period on a visitor VISA you have to stay for a longer period in your home country before coming back. is that right? If it is correct how will return for the STep3 and the IVs. Should I take a student VISA for kaplan step3 instead? Is is the condition different this way?

I really appreciate your advice and past experience.

Thank you
