Default Step 2 2 years after step 1, Study plan!?

Hi, I have very good step 1 scores. But, I took a long gap, plans changed and I am doing MPH now. I want to give my step 2 CK in june 2015 and meanwhile be done with step 2 CS. I have FA for step1, MTB 2, KLN notes for CK. I plan to take UW subscription for 2 months just prior to my exams. I almost have forgotten step1 stuff. Should I brush through FA for step1 fir CK? Should I add any other study material and plan CK preparation differently? I am apprehensive about the long gap after my step1! Help!

what you need to review that isn't covered in CK mostly is biostats and ethics. brush those up from where ever you want.

skip the KLN. MTB 2 + 3 +uworld is enough.

I think uworld does a good enough job of pharma and side effects.
I think mostly is ' best initial treatment', ' most effective treatment' and side effects associated with drugs are the type of questions you would get.
micro not so much...just the basics. all covered in mtb2/3 and uworld.
