6 months seem more than enough to me 2 be honest. The best way to know whether or not your prepared for the exam is to do an nbme exam, start off with nbme 1.

If you read books such as Kaplan Medical and annotate your first aid effectively during this 6 month period.. as well as use qbanks correctly and effectively... I see no reason why you wouldn't have succes on the usmle

i think you should take a look at this students perspective on studying for the USMLE
