Group talk Dec-Jan-Feb Exam takers. Gather here plz

Hello friends,

I'm starting to study for CK tomorrow(Aug 23,2012) and will give exam end of Dec or early Jan so if you are interested let's please stay in touch here and encourage each other. More like a support forum.
Here is my plan for CK:
1. One reading of Kaplan notes
2. Multiple readings of MTB2CK + MTB3 for NON-IM subjects. I will still read the NON-IM subjects from MTB2CK.
3. UW(3 months) + Kaplan(1 month)
4. Multiple reading of Secrets for step 2 CK.
5. Take NBMEs and UWSA

Will be reading full time 8am-9pm MON-FRI. 8AM-5PM Sat and Sunday.

Good luck all of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hi everyone.

I am doing my clinical rotations side by side and also preparing for step 2.

I am planning to take my exam some where between JAN-FEB-MARCH...

i would really loves to take my exam on december but i dont know how far will i be able to be ready for it because i just finihed my step 1 and kinda been very lazy lately. is that normal???

plan

1-1st read KLN and then do video (video only for IM, OB-GYN and if there are any other highly recommended videos)
3- MTB2 AND 3
3-UW
4-NBME AND UWSA


How i am planning to go on is that i am planning use UW as a study material. so will be doing it subject wise.

eg:
First will read endocrinology Kaplan notes and then do video of that topic along with MTB 2 reading and also adding notes in to mtb.

and after that i am planning on to do UW for that topic and write good amount of notes from it.

that way, by the time i finish things i will be also almost done with uw 1 time and i wont be making my life very dry with only reading but also activily doing questions as well.

and then do an nbme

and from there work on my weak areas.

I DONT KNOW HOW LONG WILL THIS TAKE ME, BUT WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT IF YOU GUYS CAN TELL ME IF THE PLAN IS GOOD


THANKS.

I liked the Secrets for step 1 and this one for step2 Ck is good too. It's good to read when you are relaxing. It's not super HY but it does make me stick things in my brain. It's a nice read for sure. Take a look at it b4 you buy it.

I suggest doing Kaplan Q Bank alongside your preparation. Not for it's contents but to mentally prepare you for WTF kind of questions on the real exam which UW lacks. Also, it has two 8 block practice tests which are useful for a full rehearsal towards the real deal.

thanks Bashir and Novobiocin

really appreciate your response.

at the moment the main factor that i have to cross is lack of motivation..

i know i can do it in a faster way, but just too lazy, trying out different methods to over come it. but aint helping.

i think maybe coz i just got done with step 1

but really dont wanna waste my time

Hey Nepb,

how come you are not doing UW? do you think Kaplan is better than UW and thus is good enough? thanks

i am planning to take my exam by december end..date not decided yet..
materials i'll be using are-
kaplan lecture notes and videos,MTB-2 & 3 ,first aid (i dont know about others but i quite liked d book ) , uworld (i plan to subscribe for uworld for 3 months in september end or october 1st week)
followed by uwsa and nbme's in november ......
i have a bad score on step 1 so i'm aiming for a score of 250 plus..and since i've given my step 1 in july this year so taking longer than 4-5 months to prepare for ck wont be beneficial at all for me...good luck to all of you..

Are 3-4months enough for CK? considering the fact that i took almost a year for step 1(probably means i'm not a very fast reader .... what do you guys think??

Thanks in advance

3-4 months would be sufficient if u have recently given step 1(which u already did)
and personally i feel most of the material i've been reading now from kaplan have been covered in step 1 except the diagnosis and management part(which u should concentrate upon in CK)

so when others can make it, why can't we....
WE CAN....

When did u start your prep? How much have you done so far? Is it interesting? Or just as boriong as step 1 lectures? lol

Yes i'll skip the other videos. Beacuse watching videos and reading Kaplan LN is redundancy for other subjects, plus we have to do them From MTB3 as well. so i'll skip them. I'll read the Kaplan LN for all subjects though.

My strategy of reading Kaplan LN is that i first finish a unit say Hematology from MTB2 then go through that unit from the Kaplan LN and add onto MTB2 whatever additional is in Kaplan which i feel to be added. But caution you dont need to write pathophysiology points from Kaplans to MTB especially if u r done with step1 recently which most of us have. Good luck with the preparation

First Aid is not recommended for CK as MTB is to be done like FA in step1, Qbook is old but not bad to practice, most people however nowadays are not using it and still scoring very High.
Good luck for the result

Also from people who have taken the exam, or know people who have recently passed, is mtb 2ck & mtb3 these are good sources?
They seem a bit incomplete to me.. But i am looking for advise.

Thanks

Most of videos r around 2007 or after. The yr 2000 videos r the old ones.

MTB2 and 3 are excellent resources with consesnus, if u have strong background or have given Step1 Exam recently then these must b your primary books.

Most users use MTB2 for medicine and MTB3 for rest of subjects.

Hope it hepls.
