Show Teeth Kaplan Liveprep

So im studying for CK and intend to start this course in january...it will last for 6 weeks...meanwhile my goal is to consolidate my knowledge using the lecture notes and uworld qbanks and do an assessment exam somewhere inbetween...So starting january I want to be ready for the exam essentially...but If I'd be scoring 220 then..I wanna score 250 + post the course...
Am I having delusions of grandeur?

Two months prep will get you 220 but if you want 250+ you need to do KLNs and UW twice along with maybe Kaplan QBank / MTB 2 & 3 which might take you 4-6 months depending on your time commitments and background knowledge.
Hardly anyone I know has done Kaplan Liveprep but heard that it is good for keeping you on trackandis an intense review so it is better to do at the end of your prep. Do NBMEs every few weeks to assess your progress and UWSA at the end of your prep.
