Experiences Passed Step 1 in 3 months

Hi guys,
Just wanted to post my experience in Step 1.
Have got a fellowship in the US, and hence needed to pass and be ECFMG certified.
Got a 239 in Step 2 Ck (did CK first-thought that this would be easier as more clinical.
Studied 3 months for Step 1.
Did FA once and UWorld twice.
Important to do UWorld as a learning tool.
Got 72% in the first time-the second time was easier-more so as I remembered the wrong answers-hence may not be accurate second time round.
Did NBME 13,15 and 12.
Scored 470 in 13-that was a killer, and 490 and 540 in NBME 15 and 12.
Got my results -223 on the real deal.
Am happy with that-
Thanks be to Lord Jesus.

Hi,
I am from India. I have got a Uro Oncology fellowship. Yes-I did only FA and UWorld. Nothing else- No Goljan/Pathoma/Kaplan LN.
However, did the UW really thoroughly
