Planning Have your say - USMLE test date and schedule

I am registered for Oct-Dec 2011 Step 1, I am an IMG , 4th year medical student. and Can't decide if i should just choose a date or wait till I am at least done my first read. I just started my preparation in July. So far I have covered Molecular and cellular biology, Immunology, Biochemistry and Microbiology. I honestly don't recall much from what i have learnt but I keep going over concepts. My weakest subject is Micro and Pharmacology.

The rest of the topics that i am covering are by systems.

I do not use Kaplan.
With my current approach, Do you think I can score above 95? and by when should I apply for a test date? Is it highly essential to do a second read?

Depends on the center, where are u at?

I will advise you to wait till the days comes closer, and you at least have taken 1 nbme to know where you are ... =)

Do the UW and Qbank Kaplan, read FA and then take the NBME, then after that you can go and choose the DAte. =)
