Hi guys!!
i really need some help here!! and ill appreciate evryones sincere advice!
i hav 3 months before i giv my CK ( that will be august) . i hav done a quick superficial read of Kaplan LN with Videos, so far.
I need to kno which Qbank do i go with first. Here are the 2 options.

A. i do UW for 2 months, subject wise. learn as much as possible. Then Do Kaplan Qbank in the last month, Timed Random Mode and practice exam style questions?

Ok...dont make my mistake!
DO KAPLAN QBANK FIRST and use it as a learning tool (the way you were planning with UWorld).
The reason- The general opinion is that UWorld is more exam oriented. We dont have many simulation exams for step2 ck and so you can use timed random mode UWorld before your exams as a prequel to your Step2CK. Try finishing Kaplan in a month so that you can revise UWorld for 2 months. Its possible (jus do 2 full sets 88 q/day) and u'll be done within a month.
Hope this helps
