Planning Step 1 prep scedule

Hey Guys, I am new to this website. I have been reading a lot of u guys threads and replies. I am finding it very useful.
However, like everyone else, its time for me to make my schedule for this BIG EXAM.

I am planning to write the step in Oct. Also, I am starting Falcon in July for the 7 weeks program. but before falcon starts I am thinking of going over all of Kaplan lecture notes, along with FA the organ system book. During falcon I will go over uworld and after Falcon I will still continue to do NBME and read over the uworld explanation.
2-3 weeks before my exam I am planning to read just FA.

However, I think that my schedule still feels like its not proper or is missing something.

PLEASE MY FRIENDS, HELP ME OUT IN MAKING AND GIVING ME ADVISE WITH THIS EXAM.

I will greatly appreciate it.

Default Do Kaplan

Your schedule is missing on Kaplan Qbank

Many people are saying it's closer to the exam than UW nowadays. So you should do both Kaplan and UW.

Do you recommend that DocAngel101 do UWorld first, and understand the concepts before doing Kaplan Qbank? I feel that UWorld is the MOST important qbank where other qbanks do have errors, especially UsmleRX.

Hi,
Besides QBanks discussed above, I would recommend you start reading FA from the beginning, at least one reading..(I don't know too much about about the organ system book though).
