Help Step 1 preparation

Hello i am an IMG and im looking forward to presenting the USMLE step 1 near february. I am thinking on using the Kaplan videos and note taking on First Aid as my only study tools, i plan on doing USMLEWOLRD during the 3 months period before my exam.

I was thinking on also buying the Kaplan Qbook or the USMLE cases book for reviewing everyday after lectures and note taking.

Do you think this will be sufficient? considering that i can only use approximately 4 hours daily to USMLE preparation because i am still in medschool starting third year on august. My overall time of preparation will be of 6 months.

Thank you very much.

FA is a must . Most of us prefer KLN as study reference but students have done well even without them so I guess u can do it just by videos itself. You might want to check out NBME before u sit for the actual exam
