Help Moving on from CK to Step 1

Hi,

I had step2ck exam yesterday I am thinking that I am going to get bad score because I feel sooo bad
so I want to start prep for step 1 reading within 2 weeks
so I have few questions

1- Is Kaplan lecture notes enough with videos and 1st aid and UW for step 1 ? or do I have to read other materials?

2- Can I complete 2 readings with qbank within 5 to 7 months? is that possible? since i completed step 2 exam 1st
and how many hours I should read per day? every video how long it takes to complete it? should I see video in the night and in the morning read kaplan lec notes for that topics? is that s good plan?

3- Should solve kaplan q bank offline after every book i end it ???

4- Should I take uw online after 1st reading for the books or should i complete it twice ??

plz any advice i will be very thankful

7mths is plenty if you do 10hrs everyday
the formula fa+uw+kaplan+lectues is the magic formula
take nbme's and assess yourself and then focus on weak areas
