Planning Old Grad Starting Prep for Step 1

Hi there,

I am an old IMG graduate back in 2005 and been away from medical field ...I know its too late and possibly I won't get a chance but I will try.
I want to take step one in Dec and I will start studying in May ...So 8 months or even less because I work 3 days a week used to be full time.

So I need advise about what to study and how to study the most efficient way with time I have.

I have Kaplan notes the dark blue ones (2008) and the Kaplan videos 2007 and First Aid I can buy the last one ...so please can u guys tell me wt is the best way to prepare with time I have ...some people are telling me do FA and UW many times that will help getting a good score

Is that possible ?

Thanks in advance for any opinion
