Planning Sample Step 1 Study Guide

Hi, Ive started my prep last aug. but after a few days I didn't continue due to personal reasons... now, today will be my first day of review and I will sit for the exam on sept. as I can't postponed it to later date... I understand many of the posts here are from the IMGs like me. and majority said it takes at average 6-9 months for the prep... but if there is someone who took it in 4 months, could you be kind enough to share your study plan. thank you

thank you Doctors for your kind words of advise and encouragement.
I don't feel alone knowing someone across the globe is also reviewing for this step. May God bless our endeavors... take care

PS.
to share my plans...
first 7 weeks- I will do kaplan (lecture notes and video except for patho will be doing pathoma)
remaining weeks till exam day FA and Uworld (I'll try to cover the whole book in 2 weeks so I can read FA 5x)
my study hours/day:10-15 hrs... with Sundays off
after reading the exam experiences from this forum, I came to a conclusion that studying for a long period of time is also not helpful as you get burned out in the long run and tend to forget the things you study... so 4 months in my opinion should be enough (hopefully...)
