Clock Is that enough time?

Hello everyone,
I have roughly scheduled my Step 1 around the first week of July but haven't taken a block yet. I have not even finished my first pass yet. I have roughly about five and a half months I guess. Is that enough time or a little less

Default Depends

It all depends upon your background knowledge. If its good then you would do just fine with that amount of time. Good luck!!

Also depends on how much time per day you can invest.

Yeah, you have time...But it depends on different things, background knowledge, how good a test taker you are, and how effective your study habbit is. But you should be fine. My advice is, take it serious and don't play around. 5 months can come by fast. So eat, breathe and sleep USMLE step 1.
