Listening Starting Step 1 Prep with Full time job!

I would appreciate any suggestions and advice about how to start prep for step 1. I am a native english speaking IMG, almost 4 yrs. I have done some study off and on, but basically since i have been working in a clinical setting, im deciding to prepare for CS first. My plan is then to start fresh with step 1 prep. My problem is that I must work full time and can devote at most 4-5 hrs (split) to study daily and of course 8-12hrs on wknds. Any suggestions on what sys/subject I should start with? How long should i prepare? What resources I should use, just some guidance how I should approach this mountain? Help!!!!!!!!!! So confused!!!!!

Start with general topics like biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, immunology, behavioral science and then study systems
