Hey JazakaALLAH for a great post.
I had few questions, can u please tell for all the subjects u did only MTB 2/3? U didn't use any other book for any subject??
Also u mentioned step 1 helps, does that mean u referred to FA step 1? If yes then please tell how exactly did u use it for step 2?
JazakaALLAH (:

i did fred before starting uworld and got around 85% in it
i started with MTBs did 2 and 3 side by side and then after one read of them i started online uworld took pictures of charts and algorithms in it because i though i might not be able to complete it in 1 month if i did charts and algorithms so i just took their pictures for later so in the end when i was done with uworld and my subscription had ended i did uwrolds charts and algorithms in the last 10 days before exam

and regarding step 1 basically step 2 asks a lot about the pathophysiology about different diseases plus i dont think uworld or mtbs adequately cover immunodeficiency diseases and metabolic diseases
