hello.
everything you do for the exam is good. But I think the god of step 1 is FA plus UW. Without these two resources I think it would be a little difficult. DIT is a good resource if you have time, do it. I know friends with just kaplan, FA, UW, Goljan or Pathoma have good score. But I repeat everything you do for a good result in the exam will be alright. good luck

Hi
All depends of you. UW have approximately 46 blocks (some friend Told that). if you do 1 block daily, you will finish about 46 days later. Some friend do 2 blocks daily, but personally I can not do two blocks a day, because I focus on the explanations and take down on FA. also depends on your time and as you do each block.When you'll take your exam?
