Default Help and advise with my prep.

Good day. I am an IMG and would highly appreciate it for some advise about this
Step 1 prep plan:
Plan to take the exam around October this year.


So, Started preparing Last June with FA 1st time for this prep. Had already done FA 3x prior for my Local license board.

So, plan for prep books are as follows:

FA
BRS physiology
Pathoma
Kaplan Anatomy, Pharmacology, Immuno & Microbio, And Behavioral Sciences

Banks:
Uworld and NMBE

Would this be enough to get a good score for step1?

Hey I'm also aiming for late October and using almost identical resources as you are.. except for Kaplan Anatomy ( I really really hate it and have yet to find a good resource that does not put me to sleep). Pharm is great, one of the best to be honest.

Have you taken any NBMEs? It is good to establish a baseline to track your progress as you improve. It is also good to have an actual study plan broken down into weeks to make sure you have time to cover all the material you want to cover and also to finish the question bank at least once. I would recommend doing more than one question bank if possible. One thing all our high scoring tutors have in common is they all did a high volume of questions as a way to practice for the real thing. It is possible if you budget your time appropriately. They usually did the lower yield question bank at the beginning of their study and saved the higher yield question bank for the critical last month.
