Smile Trying to do Step 2 ck in 3 mo

Hello. I started my prep for step 2 ck 2 months after my step 1 result came back in october 2011, as I started studying I found out I was pregnant and decided to stop ck prep and start CS wich I did and I pass.
Thank God
Now, a couple of months later I decided to start CK, wasn't able to start before due to constant interruptions and traveling to home country.
My plan is to do MTB ck and MTB step 3 reading along with some stuff from kaplan LN, I'm adding notes if I don't understand something specifically from MTB or if I need a little more.

My plan as I said is to read MTb 2 and MTB 3. Once I'm done I'm planning on doing UW.

Is this realistic for 3 months. Even tough I know I will be taking exam very close to my due date, I want to try my best bc once the baby is here studying is going to get harder and harder.

Want some opinions.

well! first congrats!!

and as for ur schedule, it depends on how much u hav retained from ur earlier readings of ck! i rembr u frm the step1 forum, n u were pretty bright. so m sure ull do it. wa ti suggest is. stick to MTB2 for few subjects and MTB3 for some. like obs gynae and paeds are must to frm MTB3. n rest frm MTB2. and watever extra time to u save, focus more on questions! redoing watevr u get wrong on uw and may be even redoing the whole uw twice! it helps majorly!
good luck!
ull do greatt
Ppl come here to study n ponder
