Default My step 2 ck experience

Hello everyone. ..
I took my exam in August, and alhamduLe Allah I passed .
I've studied for around 7 months , my main materials were kaplan series books , videos of obs&gyn / behavioural science"step1" and of course USMLE WORLD .
My second read I used MTN 2 and 3 for revision..

And here are my numbers :
UWSA : 242
Nbme 4 :225
Nbme 7 : 221

The real deal : 236

Note : from my experience nbmes are not as predictive as UWSA and try not to do nbme 7 because it's really a killer

Is my score good and competitive? ?

And you watched videos from kaplan? if kaplan which year?
Did you use kaplan notes 2015? Did you watch 2010 kaplan ck videos? Are these videos alright if used with kaplan 2015 lecture notes?
I would really appreciate your help.
