Unhappy Need guidance for Step 2 CK Prep

I have recently gotten my step 1 score which was not that great although I worked really hard for the exam and gave ten months for its prep. I need to know how should I work to raise my score in step 2...which books should I do and how much time should I give??
I need to get score in 90z at least my step 1 score was 83 which is not motivating at all

Smile Don't worry

Don't worry, CK is easier than Step 1. You'll get in the 90s.

Just do the following:

Kaplan Lecture Notes, (no need for the videos)
Kaplan Qbank
USMLEWorld
NBME before the exam to make sure of your score

That's it, you can finish all this prep in 3 months if you study hard. Which means you can still apply for the next match if you have taken the CS
