Help Exam in October 2013

Hello dearesr

Here is me , i was planning to take the exam on august , started studying 4 months ago but with a 3 hours\ week rate , i finished nothing

I had to work that is why i didnt have time , so i decreased my work hours to 4 hours daily, to focus on step 1 ( despite the financial burden)

Currnetly i am done with physio and anatomy except neuro anatomy .. But i feel i totally forgot physio , any advice about that ??

I found this forum very motivating , i want to ask a question and i need honest answers , am i so late to have the exam on october , i extended the eligibility to sep oct nov 2013 , but my wedding gonna be in the begining of november

So october sounds to be my last chance..

I aim at 240+

I am doing kaplan vid + notes and i plan to start FA when i am done with 4 subjects , my rate now is 4 hours a day , with 2 days off , trying to increase it as much as i can ..maybe to 8 hours a day , when shoud i be finished with the 1st read , and 2nd read ,and when shoud start solving questions ??

What do you think of this ??

i think u should go thru kaplan physio first with qbank and add notes into FA.. do as many questions possible.. take a nbme exam to see where u stand.. then work on ur weaker areas.. try to be ready before oct.. so u can spend a few etra days going thru some last minute stuff and one last review.. gluck.. make sure to do uworld questions

I'm going for October too. I was scheduled for July, but I was working too much, did an nbme and scored 310/177 so decided to go for October. I should have 6 hrs/day w/ 2 days off as well... Hope is enough!

I think you can completely and easily do it, you have two full months. Just think that over there there are doctors that did the all thing in 2-3 months and pass it, and spmetimes they are img not newly graduated.
Of course it depends how much time you can study every day. And if u feel still not ready I think to change you eligibility period is 65 doll. which is not much compared to the overall cost... :/

Just study and dont panic, you have the time. I was tempted to do it on july 10th even if I scored 177 on NBME 11 but I figured that its too risky so I have to extend my eligibility and go for october ( i have to work full time july 15 to end of august)...
