Planning Does this study outline plan look realistic? I don't want to kid myself anymore!

I have taken consdirable time off from my own life, and I have up to 10 hours per day to prepare for the step 1.

Is this plan realistic?

February/March/April

Finish up Goljan Pathology (know it inside out, back to front)
Brush up on Physio (brs)
Brush up on Biochem (lippincot illustrated)
Scan CMMRS (especially end of chapter charts)

My WEAKEST areas:

Gross anatomy and Neuroscience: Read through HY for both. Perhaps Roadmap for Anatomy? not sure yet.

pharm + behavioal: going to rely on KAPLAN LN


ENTIRE MONTH OF MAY:

Do Kaplan Lecture notes + Videos (ALL, except Pathology)

JUNE/JULY:

UWORLD QUESTIONS/FIRST AID/PRACTICE EXAMS



END OF JULY:

Take the EXAM!

I suggest u give more time to FA and uworld. coz u wont remember much from kaplans anyways. i mean either rely on kaplans or on the books u have listed.dont rely on two sources. and concentrate more on FA n uworld.

I agree with hoor. While Kaplan is good in terms of building concepts, FA and UW are what's most important... Know FA very well and I can guarantee you will get a 75%+ on UWorld random, timed mode.

I think doing QBANKS just in the last month is not a good idea. u should start doing as soon as u finish first read. so that you get time to revise what you don't know or couldn't do. Its not useful if you cannot go through what you have done in Qbanks.. u need time!
The plan is quite good just try to rally stick to it!
