Embarrassed Need guidance to START preparation.

Hi, I am an MBBS passout(2012)

I never planned to give PG entrance exam till now and thus never prepared. Now I have an urge to do an MD in the USA and have been considering studying for it. However I have nobody to guide me. Am I making a right decision or is it too late? I have some questions, please answer them

1. I passed out in 2012 and have had no clinical experience after that, will this be a problem as a lack in my profile?
2. I have not prepared for PG at all, will it be too difficult for me to start now?
3. If I start from scratch now, how long will it take me to be prepared for step1?
4. Can I do it without taking coaching/classes, just by the help of firstaid and qbanks?

Please please help!
