Help please help me with my study plan step 1

Hi everybody,

I am IMG, graduated last year. I have started studying for USMLE step 1 from July when I registered for classroom anywhere kaplan courses. But I decided to start my course on Jan 2015 because of some personal problems. During these almost 5 months period I tried to listen to Kaplan videos and studying lecture notes as fast as possible. I went through all the disciplines 3 times (It was only a preview time for me). But I haven't touched FA at all. Now I want to set up an organized study plan for my self but I don't have any clue how to do that. my online classes will start next week and every week kaplan will cover a discipline. The classes are from 6pm to 10 pm at my local time.

1.So, do you think it is a good idea If I study whatever I have been taught the night before, the day after + studying FA?

2.I don't know if I should go through lecture notes and videos again in the meantime I am attending the classes or just focus on what they are teaching + FA.

3.My biggest concern is what part of FA I should focus more on? General principle or organ system.

4.This is my plan:
first week: physio
before the class starts in each discipline go through qbook on the same subject and then every day study whatever I learn in the class + FA
at the end of the week when the physio finishes I start Qbank.

I will apply the same thing for all the other disciplines.
please help me with arrange my study plan in the best way. I really appreciate to give me your ideas.
