Post Study Schedule Advice

Hi Guys
I'm just starting to study for my step 1 exams so I'm looking some advice (just finished second year)

1. Should I do a diagnostic exam to see where I'm at?

2. Should I be using qbanks now along with studying or should I wait till I review all of FA?

3. Plan is studying 8-10 hrs a day, is that enough? Will i need more or less?

4. Recommended books/qbanks??

Any advice would be appreciated thanks

(aiming for a score of 240 or above )
