Question Is MKSAP good for CK prep?

Hi,

I am currently studying for USMLE Step 2 CK and I was wondering if I should purchase MKSAP to help me prepare for the IM section. I have been researching that MKSAP is good for the Medicine shelves during residency, is that true? Or will doing MKSAP help me do really well on the IM section of step 2. Or should I stick to UWorld in preparing for Step 2? Can someone please advise me.?!

Thanks

anyone can say MKSAP or any other sources are bad, but remember all sources have advantages and disadvantages, you won't find any single source that would be complete.

All that matters is your time to exam and review the contents you've read more and more, I think this is the secret to your success in exam.

Yes I agree, I think what is bad though is not reading through your main source though, I'm using Master the boards and DeJa review step 2 both I have read through once and will spend the next week going over a 2nd time and some cases 3rd.

Getting to truly know the material is important not how many.

Good Luck.
