Default guidance for step 1 prep

hey guys, I'm new to this forum and would like some help with charting out a study plan for step 1.
I plan to give the exam by end of jan 2015. I'm short of time and a little worried about how I'll manage.
Iv gone through the kaplan videos and made notes for pharmac, biochem, and immunology...for micro iv gone through micro made ridiculously simple and FA..
patho iv gone through pathoma videos..Still got a lot of ground to cover and many revisions to do...
I'v subscribed to uworld as well and try and solve the questions on tutor mode when i get done with a subject...
Would really appreciate your help in charting out a study plan which would help me get the maximum score in this short duration of time..
Thanks

you have enough time if you use it wisely.
since you're already gone over most things, i would recommend that you devote the rest of your time to FA and uworld.
start with one block of uworld a day. one block done properly with explanations should take 2-3 hours.
then read FA. 10-15 pages.
when you get up to being comfortable with this pace, you can start doing two blocks of uworld.

you need to do uworld twice. then do the incorrect questions on uworld.
and you need to read fa about twice. then do it really quickly in like 5 days (100+/day). then you can go over it again in two days towards the end. I did that.
