Planning Will I make it by October!

Hi guys ,

I started my step 2 prep about a month ago.
I have to take my exam by October end and till now I have done most of internal medicine from MTB-CK and pediatrics few chapters from Kaplan CK Notes , I was really slow in the starting but now i want to speed up i was wondering will any kind soul just guide me whether it is possible for me to take exam by October end or its impossible.
I am planing to finish IM and pediatrics this month and then obs/gyne, surgery and psychiatry in September and USMLE World twice in October.
Is it too much in too less time

Well, I think you should try to read the material faster and focus on the questions, which are the key to learn. At least do two months of questions because you have 2000+ questions that you have to review the explanation..that is a lot.


Good luck in your preparation.

yeah i agree that 2000+ questions will take 2 months.

Just read it, what you need is to know where is the topic that you will review when you are doing the questions.

I mean that at the time you are doing the questions, probably you will need to review a topic, so it will be easier to find the topic you need if you have read the book before.
