Question UW + Step up to Med + MTB2CK enogh for CK?

I have already done Step-1 have 4 months to prepare for 2CK.

Here is my plan and I appreciate ur advice:

UW Qbank (twice) parallel with a book which highlights important points and I can write down additional notes to have a review book for last few days before exam (like the way I used FA for step1 which I liked very much). I thought UW+ step up to Medicine+ MTBck2 would be enough. What do u think?

Thank you

PS. I heard Kaplan lectures are very recommended for step2CK. For the step 1 I didnt like them as they were too much stuff and not to the point. How about step2? Is it diferent?

Hey! That's what I am doing right now. I got done with my Step 1 in November and I started studying for CK 3 weeks back (last week of Dec). My exam is scheduled for April 5 and I still don't feel like studying that hard. I am using Uworld and I am annotating my MTB-CK with it.A lot of people are still telling me to do atleast Med,Psych,and OBGYN videos and have atleast ONE read of KLN. I just have read surgery KLN and Psych as yet. I also plan in squeezing in Kaplan qbank for 2 weeks if time permits. Time is the biggest constraint actually! Let's see what others have to say about this...Good luck!

Hi. I gave my Step 1 on Dec 15 and am planning to give my CK towards end of March. I am wondering if I can manage to complete my preparation within these three months. I am doing Kaplan lecture notes. Read Obs/Gyn, Ped and Internal Med once. Now I'm mid way through Sur. Want to finish this up and then do psych and First Aid. Then I'm planning to do UW questions with MTB CK and Board Basics side by side with annotations. Still so much to do! Does this sound like a good plan. Would appreciate any advice. Good luck to both of you!
