Yeah of course...my preparation plans were same for both the step 1 nd step 2 ck...I read the standard course books...

For review-
1.Kaplan notes
2.first aid
3.brs pathology nd high yield for behavioural sciences.

NBME-step 1-242-3days ago
For step 2-242-4 days ago
Uwsa-243 -3months ago(I personally thnk Uwsa overestimates u nd is a false predictor nd gives u wrong impression)...
NBME-is very accurate as u can see from my scores corelation...try to give as much as u can nd as earlier as cld possible...

1. Last month I thnk u shod try to revise the notes u made while during ur preparation.

2. Revise ur review books or other materials u used.

3. Give first aid a shot.

4. I wld advise to give atleast 2 NBME tests before ur final exam.they predict very accurately...try to give ONLINE tests only...

5. I had given NBME 3 or 4(don't know exactly) bat 4 days before my exam-got 242 nd final score was-242
I thnk this ll help u doing well...
