Arrow 228/98 Experience; Using Kaplan Qbank Page References

NOT MY EXPERIENCE BUT PLEASE DO COMMENT/ANALYZE IT....Please

228/98 July 2011 (IMG graduating in 2007! Preclin rusty at best!)
Did this in 2 months exactly,
Kaplan Q-Bank once -- used the page references for FA as I went along and made notes for points not in the text.
Did 60% of UW -- time ran out!
Read 200 pages of weaker topics in FA cases.
Read over notes made from both Q-Banks.
Read 1st 500 pages of Step 1 Secrets and didn't even finish the FA, only got through 400 pages by the week of the exam.
UW SA1 (6wks b4) -- 214
UW SA2 (2wks b4) -- 224
I think once both Q-Banks are done with incorrect items done over and FA is read -- you should be set to get >235 -240 -- anything extra, Goljan etc. >250!

Of note, this is a decent score I'm told by many of my colleagues who average 6-8/12 of study for this exam, considering I did it in 8/52. A big tool for learning was using the page refs in Kaplan and reading/annotating the FA along with it. By the time that bank is done, you'd have read the majority of high yield stuff from the FA without even realizing it.
