USMLEWorld Supplementing USMLE World for my CK prep

guys I've already passed my step one, last august and after 4month of a full time job I am planning to do my step two CK. I read a little of Kaplan CK Notes and started UW qkank because after so many hours of work doing questions is what motivates me more.
I have done 23% of questions 56% score overall, and lately the last 3 tests scored above 59%.
Planning to do test at the end of May, working from monday to thursday some times 8-10 hours, have free fri,sat,sund.
My question is I know probably I will end up close to 60% or above, at what time in my prep or UW sore should I take the test, and wish book can I use as my partner in this new test, I know for step one is first aid.
Please Advice.

Im in the same situation, just did step1 and starting step2ck and wondering what book to chose parallel to UW Qbank. But for the question of when to know ur prepared, I think U should just rely on NBME online self assessments. Whenever you get 2 exam with satisfying score should be a time to take the exam.

Smile Would recommend FA or MTB

I thnk reading a review book in the time you get will be really great. First Aid or MTB 2CK are good source. Many recommend MTB compared to FA. That will improve your score further

Then you can give NBME and see where u stand and when you reach a level which is satisfying, you can do the exam...

I think this is an excellent way of reparing for the exam...4 months after step 1. That is a big boost..
