Default Review material/s for step 2 CK

Hi! I'm a bit confused on which study material to use for step 2 CK aside from UWorld (FA, MTB 2 or 3 or MTB IM, or Kaplan lecture notes). The reviews on Amazon are confusing. Can anybody who has taken step 2 CK and read these materials help me on this one. Thanks!?

I read all of them, for me the best material is Kaplan.
It is complete and have almost all that you need to know for your preparation.
Also the MTB are good but lack a lot of important info. they are like the FA for step 1.

If you want I can give you the pdfs

Thanks for the reply. So in your opinion MTB2CK+UW is NOT enough to get a good score on the test? For the Kaplans did you just read the pdfs or also watched the videos?

Thank Blastocisto!
And about the other question? Do you think MTB 2 CK + UWorld Q bank would be enough for a good score?

Guys don't email that person. They are just going to sell you things and whatever they said for reviews is a lie and a trap to lure you. I clicked on the abuse button so that user is not going to have anyone fooled. I hope the people running the forum will take action on that. Be careful in not getting scammed of your money!

You can't believe half the posts now in this forum and if they are putting their email id on here, you should think twice.

Thanks Timexa! I'm surprised he said "the books and videos are not important."

Hi PeterPan! How are you preparing for your CK? I've started reading MTB 2 CK and I could say that it's not enough bec a lot of information are missing. I'll supplement the other topics with Kaplan lecture notes, and try to do UWorld after I've covered most of the topics. Good luck!

Hi, I will start tomorrow. So far I think I'll stick to MTB 2 CK and UW. I plan to do KLN only if I notice I'm doing poorly in UW or NBME. Sure, KLN is more extensive, but I am trying to wrap things up faster.

I agree with you DIT, with study guide was very thorough ... Also want to mention Paul Bolin videos on you tube... they allowed me to review things that were not clear or well covered in DIT.
UW qbank, and its value is in its detailed explanations.... I reviewed all the questions.
Good luck to all
