1- dont waste time thinking about how to start--just start studying
2- depends on u how much time u need to comprehend the subject matter, but usually 5 months is more than enough if u study 6-8 hrs daily
3- most people study kaplan lec notes and/or master the boards(MTB) & augment it with a question bank like usmleworld or kaplan qbank
4- both methods have benefits but its better to complete a whole block before revising answers

5- read the step2 CK experiences by people who have taken the exam, & make your own plan that suits you. only u can decide whats best for u.

&, best of luck
