Default Step 2 before 1 , sincere advice please

Hello,

I am still a student in clinical years, and soon I will start my internship.

I always thought why don't I take Step 2 before Step 1? Since most clinical topics are still fresh in my mind,and I studied them well in university.

I know this q has been asked several times, but i need really some sincere advice.

Thanks all

Don't do this. USMLE step 1 lays the foundation for CK. The solid preparation for step 1 is the key to get high step 2 ck score. Off course, if you're willing to commit drilling into step 1 material in addition to step 2 can put you on par with the people who took step 1, though this approach MUST be very well planned and structured.
