Your plan sounds solid.
Make sure you do questions daily to supplement the material you studied that day. (at least ~2 blocks of questions, once you get pacing right, increase it to ~4 blocks of questions)

Can't say anything about your plan,
just know that the scoring system has changed and they don't give out 99 anymore. It was never percent, btw.
So you should aim for a good three-digit score.
YOu can read about scoring on usmle.org

hey Mehta
do following things..
1. go through past experiences of students who scored 250+ or 99 .. as many as u like . it will help you immensly..
2. add more q banks to your plan.. such as kaplan q bank ,q book ..
3. do as many questions as you can thats the key role to score high in usmle.
4. do uw atleast twice.. take down notes and keep revising it..
5. add NBME to your plan.. to self assess your preperation..

good luck with your step 1..

NO and a very big No .. do not make your study complicated make it easy , and study hard but smart..
I remember one said to me Kaplan are the best books for usmle do not experiment with books it will consume a lot of your precious time .. so stick with one book and do it cover to cover..
they are some really good books which you can supplement your studies with..
1. BRS physiology
2. highy yeild series of anatomy .. esp embryo and neuroanatomy.
3. CMMRS for microbiology.
4. conrad fischer ethics book for behaviorl science.
5. can also use flash card for micro and pharma.

hope this helps.. Good luck with your studies
