Listening do you think this is a good plan?

hello everyone!
i recently got my step 1 score... and i passed, im happy because i thought i failed but its actually a "low pass"
the thing is that i really need to improve my step2ck score in order to ensure at least some interviews with IM programs, but i need to take my exam before march because after march i will have some personal things i can't avoid and won't let me study afterwards....
my plan is:
1. to use Step Up to Step 2 as main book,
2. DIT,
3. subscribe to UW for 3 months (the only three months i will have to study),
4. and as a last week resource read USMLE Step 2 Secrets.

im thinking about this because
1. i still have fresh my step 1 knowledges
2. i also learned from my own mistakes in step 1
a) i read kaplan lecture notes but after all were not useful, because i'm the kind of person that retain more information if there's pressure
b) i did UW "randomly" but i realized that after reading a subject in FA doing UW in that particular area the knowledge is more solid, so, im not going to use UW "after" i read the book for the first time but DURING my first review i'm gonna do UW too
c) although FA is definitely the best and most complete review book for step 1 my brain got bored and after the third and fourth time reading it my brain was "familiar" with those pages and "thought" i already knew a concept that i actually did not... that's why im going to switch the book in the last review...

i really really REALLYYYYYY need a super high score, do you think this is a good 3 month plan? :sorry:

Default i think its ok

i think its a good plan. but i cant say much about DIT. nvr done it. KLN definitely good, MTB yes, and usmle secrets is good too.

but im confused now, would u pick UW notes or usmle secrets? there r both notes but at least UW notes are more of UW bank secrets.

i havent done my step 2ck, but perhaps id suggest doing as many questions are possible. when u are comfortable with ur score, go ahead and schedule an exam date.

im not sure about NBMEs though. NBME 3 seems easy as compared to UW or kaplan qbank for that matter. does anyone else find this true?
