Well it depends upon whether you're starting CK right after Step 1 or not. If you're starting right after Step 1 then try to complete MTB 2/3 ASAP and jump to UW. This will save you time and energy with maximum output.
If you're starting CK before Step 1 or there is significant gap between Step1 and CK then I must suggest you to read Kaplan along with MTB and annotate stuff on your MTB whatever you feel is important. The thing is that you need to have very good grip on pathophysiology of every disease otherwise you'll have a feeling that every question you're doing has vague symptoms and it will be difficult to jump to diagnosis really quick.
Hope that helps!

Im also starting my ck prep,so far done with 40% of mtb2 and plan to finish it by september 1st. Then mtb3 other 3 weeks (im working full time) And then jump to kaplan qbank
I was doing mtb2 with the kaplan high yield videos but come on the guy just repeats whatever is n the book.. Anyone else feeling this way? Thought thAt it was going to be like step1 videos where they explain things more thorough.
Everyone good luck!!! Planning to give it by january.
