Planning My USMLE step 1 plan

Hello everyone ,
first i would like to introduce myself, i am an international medical student , actually now i'm at the start of my 3rd year vacation .
my target score is 245+
my sources :
KLN and vid for pharma , bio, genetics , BS.
KLN only for anatomy
microbiology ? in doubt btn KLN and CMMSR
Phathoma + goljan audio for pathology
BRS for Physiology
For QS:
KQbook
KQbank
UW

My Plan : 4 cycles
- 1st cycle :First read of KLN with Videos subject wise , doing some qs from kapQbook after each subj
* NBME
-2ed cycle : second read of KLN system wise , start annotating FA , doing KapQbank system wise / random timed
*NBME
-3rd cycle : my FA 2ed read , start doing UW .
* UWST
- 4th cycle : FA 3rd read .
*NBME fourm 7

My progress :
Now i am at the start of my first cycle , I did BRS physio once , and half pathoma .

sometimes , i think that i should start doing Kaplan Qbank after finishing phsio , path , pharma of my first read ? i don't know if it is better to wait until finishing all the subjects first read then starting the qbank wth the 2ed read . ( 2ed cycle )

for those who took the step 1 with a good score , what are your suggestions ?

Default Where are you guys !

Feel free to comment on my plan , if you think it need correction in someway just write down what you think.

my main question is do i need to start the KQbank during the first read of the material .(after finishing phsyio, path , pharma ) . as many suggested to me that starting doing the Qs earlier would be better .
and as i noted that in the Zumzum method also .

Start qbank early subject wise to consolidate ur learning and spend less time planning and more on doing!
