Help Should I take the exam this year or not

I am finishing my internship this month and am planning to for the USMLE. Can somebody advise me how much time of serious study do I require for clearing step 1?? And also how to get on with it ...am bit confused.

Also I have a maximum time up till Sept-Oct this year. Should I give my exam in 2011 or 2012 will be better option?

Do you think I will be ready by then and I have heard 90 and above is a good score and that's what am aiming for ??

Plz help !

Thanks

The time needed to prepare is polled here

How to prepare for it, I recommend this
USMLE Step 1 Preparation Books and Plan

If you want to know whether you should take the exam this year or not, you should start reading and after a while you will know for yourself whether you can do it this year or not.

Depending on how confident you feel about your basic sciences, Step 1 prep should take about 6 to 10 months. If you study seriously without any breaks sept oct does seem like a do able target. It all depends on you. If you like you can send me an email and we could co ordinate our studies as I have started studying recently as well.
