I'm planning to give my exam in Mid Sep but I'm targeting my prep to finish my prep by end Aug so that I have the buffer in hand.
Here are the links to my prep plan (oldest to newest):

Schedule Exam in Aug last week
Test Aug 29: 14 Wks to go: next 7 days' schedule
Test Aug 29: 13 Wks to go: next 7 days' schedule
12 weeks to go: next 14days schedule

I'm also an IMG but pretty old graduate.
What do you think?
