Help Help me start!

I just finished step 1 and am planning to start step 2 soon hopefully.

I plan to do the following:

-1st pass:
MTB 2 while watching kaplan videos (without the KLN textbooks).
I will annotate any extra/valuable information into MTB 2.

-2nd pass:
MTB 2 (now containing the videos' annotations) while doing UW.
I will annotate UW into MTB 2.

-3rd pass:
Complete review of MTB 2 (now containing the annotations of both, the videos and UW).

Don't know why no one replied to my last post!
Maybe this one i'll get lucky and someone can comment on my proposed study plan for step 2.

Would appreciate any advice, or re-assurance.
Is this the way to go?!

I think its a very good plan.Just make one plan and stick to it.If u have time and patience you can add kaplan qbank though its not essential but definitely it will be a plus if u add it.

this is a pretty good plan.

i think i'll do the same but use FA instead of MTB.
i'll read MTB seperately on the side but wont annotate into it because it doesnt seem to be a point-form notes book like FA is, not to me atleast.
(or maybe my mind is just used to its layout from step 1 lol)

Sorry Sorry! I was at the hospital doing my rotations so just wrote that quickly on my phone lol I wanted to tell u that I really like your plan but wanted to add that may be doing all the videos from KLN may not be necessary. I think a thorough review of MTB would be enough! If you don't do the videos may be you can go through MTB 4 times Just my 2 cents. Sorry buddy, didn't mean to offend you lol
