Default After kaplan qbank, how much time for UW?

Hi! How's everyone doing?

After months of debate with me, myself, and I... My fear of UW prevailed.

Hence, I have decided to do Kaplan qbank first before I go for UW.

Anyways, I was wondering if 1 month is enough for UW after I do kaplan qbank?

I don't want to sound blasphemous. UW is sacred... I know it should be given all the time it needs.

But if I read my kaplan qbank notes + MTB 2 or 3 before I start UW, is there any chance I can finish UW step 2 in 1 month??

Or is it a long shot? What's a more realistic time-frame?

I'm asking coz I want to mentally prepare myself in case I need to spend the christmas holidays studying for step 2 CK...

And maybe also new year... And then, valentine's...

If u do uworld once then the incorrect/marked Qs ,it will need minimum 2 months.Some blocks of Uworld have lots of info and takes an entire day
Uworld is oxygen to this test,spend time on it .

Thank uuuu!!

True, 2 months is a more realistic time-frame for UW... I guess I better extend my eligibility period. lol!

I hope Kaplan Qbank is worth the time I'm putting on it right now.

The required time investment in UW makes me want to stop doing Kaplan Qbank and switch to UW already.

Originally, I'm planning to take it on Dec. 21. But looks like I might move it.

My tentative schedule is:

Sept. - Kaplan qbank
Oct. - Kaplan qbank notes + MTB 2 or 3 (First 2 wks of october)
3rd wk of Oct to Nov - UW
Dec - Reread MTB and notes, NBMEs, etc
Dec 21 - exam

Maybe I shouldn't finish the whole kaplan qbank. Hmmm... So I can start with UW earlier.
