what was your score in Step 1 when you failed?

I think you should try Step 1 again and never go for the CK until you pass it.

How did you prepare? Did you you do USMLE World?

Not bad for only using FA and USMLEworld.

You are going to have to do online qbanks, since you did usmleWORLD, do:

1- Kaplan Qbank
2- usmlerx.com
3- usmleWorld (for a second time)

take NBMEs, online to gauge your score.

Do first aid, but remember its not complete, you need to do more than that.

BRS Physiology
BRS Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Genetics
Kaplan Notes are a good things as well.


The more qbanks you do, the better off you are. Learn from the qbanks and do reading and understand.
