Default Advice on study plan

Hey folks,

I am thinking of giving my step 1 in late august. I recently did Falcon and now I want to be ready for the 99 percentile stage by july 15 so i have an extra month to 'polish' my preparation.

But this the situation, before I did Falcon, I went through all kaplan videos and notes extensively, made ridiculously detailed notes and really established my understanding of the concepts. So basically, the only problem right now is retention, not understanding.

My plan is to spend at least 12 hours a day for the next month or so reading my falcon notes in combo with select summary pages from kaplan and first aid. I also have my uworld subscription which i just started doing and I intend to do about 75 questions everyday.

Till June30, I aim to get Anatomy, Biochem, Embryo, Neuro, Histo and Physio done. After that, I will have approximately 5 days each for Path, Pharm and Micro.

So I would appreciate any suggestions for this plan? Is it too ambitious (i.e. crazy) or can it be done? Please keep in mind that it does take me a few repetitions to memorize so I am not of those people who can remember stuff after one reading.

Well, I'd appreciate any pointers or tips.
