Hey guys!
I took step 1 on 28th dec.Now iam wondering which books to use for ck prep.And whether to go for cs first.coz i heard cs pattern will change after may.can we complete both cs and ck by may.just wondering.any input or advise will be much appreciated.
So according to the link posted above its kaplan ck LN(with or without videos)+usmleworld+kap Qbank+MTB.
can we skip step up to step 2 or step up to medicine and usmle secrets .somebody who has already taken ck,help us here!!
Thanks!
