Listening Advice to an IMS pliiiiz, regarding prepration...

Hi there, this my first post here, so please try to help me ... I'm an IMS, I finished 5th year MBBS, and it is only 6 weeks to start 6th/last year, I plan to start/resume my preparation for step 1 to take it during the first half of 6th year (about 3-4 moth from now) ... My state Now, I finished reviewing almost all of Pathoma videos and taking notes during 4th year, I finish Half of Pharm with Dr Rayom, and Half of Kaplan micro, Again both of them during the fourth and beginning 5th year, I lost my chance to do the exam at that time, so I'm trying to compensate...
- According to my study position, Is it good for me to complete my step 1 preparation?? Any Advice?!
- Or is it better to start preparation for Step 2 to do it after graduation?!

I can do up to 10-12 h/d now, and about 4-6h/d after stating 6th year..
Help please,, I'm soo confused ... THANKS

be done with kaplan videos in a month at 2x speed, read it once, take uworld subscription and fa( these are the most important thing)

It is very much doable.

Anatomy Kaplan
Physio Kaplan
Biochem Kaplan
BS kaplan and 100 cases ethics bookk by conrad fisher
Path Pathoma
Micro Immuno Kaplan
Pharm Kaplan

Finish these videos in 2x speed in vlc, if possible read the notes as well.

Get uworld, and do anat biochem bs+biostats micro immuno as subjects, then everything else is organ wise so will be useful in reading first aid.

All this is weird but gets the job done of doing uworld and first aid once

KEY OF USMLE Prep : KNOW IN DEPTH and each n every word of fa has significance.


PS : im telling how i have been doing it, i might be wrong too.

This is exactly what I'm doing right now, except I need too add golian Audio + Transcript ( 125 pages ) to the materials.
I bought FA15, and later I'll subscribe to UW, after solving some offline.
I think 2x is too fast, Im working with ~1.4x It helps me to retain much info.
