It depends on your previous knowledge and strength in medicine .there are people who just read mtb and do UW and get 250 .however some people do kaplan LN +videos kaplan qbank and uw still get in 220s .
knowledge tested in this exam is vast ,so it depends on the individuals confidence and basics strengths .

just like no review book is complete for this exam same way there is no one clear method .i'll say make a plan u r confident with and stick to it .

yup, agree with u completely.......

but bcoz at this time m thinking KLN r sufficient as they cover up everything.....may be after doing question bank , if there arises the need to do any review book , I'll pick MTB-CK......

you can read MTB-ck everyday 10-20 pages .good thing about that book its a very easy read and u can read 10-15 pages in one hour if have already read the topic from kaplan LN.
and while doing qbank annotating in a review book just as we did in step 1 is always fun .Therefore mtb is not a time taking,its not heavy as u think .my advice is try mtb even if u lack time .
