Planning Do I have time until October

Hello guys, I have step 2 ck exam scheduled for end of october.

So far i have studied the following:

Kaplan CK Lecture notes - once
UW-tutor mode along with MTB-CK once ( more of a study tool ) but the score was around 55

Will i be able to do a second revision of all subjects again along with UWSA and NBME forms...??

Can some one guide me about it and share their experience with me.

will be of great help, just getting tensed when i see the exam date marked on the calendar...

Dont be tensed. Take one NBME form and see where you stand. Start 2nd revision from weak area and do exam when you are well prepared.
Goodluck

I'm in the same boat as you, read kaplan and first aid once along with offline UW as a studying tool,and just started 2 months UW online along with the second read but have been scoring very low and my test is on Nov 15 but can't do nothing but keep on reading and doing questions I guess.

Hey, although the first read is over and am above to start the second read it all looks like new for me just vanished.
hope the exam is atleast similar to uworld , since am concentrating and rely upon it more.
Biostatistics seem to be like greek and latin for me and to top it off the new drug abstract and so on... just feeling low when i think of these

I'm actually doing random time Qs with a second read of Kaplan an FA & a first read of MTB , I think it's better to do random Qs since yyou've already done offline UW

I'm on the same time line as you guys. Thought I'd add my bit as well. I have done MTB 3 thoroughly once, have begun the second read. I did all of UW once and got an overall 575, have begun the second time around. I only have the subscription till the 24th of Sept so I want to repeat it all over atleast one mroe time, alongwith MTB again twice. I did UW mixed timed the first time, this time I am trying to do it topic wise after reading the same topic from KLN.

It'd be nice we kept each other in the loop with our game plans.
