Default please help im lost

ok i dont know what is it that i'm doing wrong here. i started studying for step 1 properly beginning of may. i got done with the first 3 sections and cvs from kln and also from brs. then i started patho cvs because i feel like patho is so much and at the end its gonna be a big subject so i decided to do system wise patho along with physio. now im done with cvs patho from goljan and the audios. then i started respiration yesterday from kln and im still not done. i thnk im really slow :s or is it because im doing brs at the same time..people claim to get done with physio in 15-20 days here i am spending more than a month and i still have renal, git AND endo left :S

Also another thing confusing me is that when i read a chapter or topic from kln i reread it and then read it from brs..now at this speed i do NOT have time for a second read! i dont even know when that time is gonna come. should i just briskly read and watch the videos and not spend too much time on each topic or should i continue doing what im doing.

any help would be appreciated

There is a proverb that "if u try to use both eyes to look into a bottle u end up seeing inside of the bottle with ur nose"
Well, u need to focus on one book. Kaplan physiology is more than enough. BRS physio is. Also enough so the combo would not take u anywhere in particular but just steal away important time.
Good luck.
