i'm going to buy step up to medicine which is 2012 edditon. so for Internal medicine i'll watch kaplan lectures and do kln2009+SUTM 2012.

i used 2008 kaplan notes for step 1 and did well. so i think that they don't change significant amount of info in it. plus we have to use most recent version of MTB-s and Qbank-s. these will suffice.

good luck.

Hey guys!

I am also going to buy MTB 2 and 3 and I already bought FA for Step 2 CK. I don't know if I will need Kaplans or not. I think it will take more time if I watch Kaplan videos. How much time are you planning to put in your study for Step 2 CK? Do you know where can I download the most recent Kaplan videos?
Good luck!

Nice to see you here fella.

so i think this is the plan we can use:

-1st read:
MTB 2/3 with kaplan videos (without the KLN's).
Annotating from the videos, anything i see useful, directly into MTB.

2nd read:
MTB 2/3 with UW.
Annotating and taking notes, onto separate pages and sticking the pages in their appropriate sections in MTB (I cut the binder and 3-hole punched it).

3rd read:
MTB 2/3 review (now containing annotations and notes from the videos and UW).

See this: Step 2 CK Amateur/Beginner

i'm doing cardiology now and think that lecture notes contain to many bla bla text.

Good to see you too, Beka! Our roads are crossing again
Your plan sounds really good! I might follow the same plan, but I need to find Kaplans videos first

@beka-ck/usmlemydream

after extensive digging and reading exam experience of those that did well/prepared ck in 4months,i realised the key is;
-MTB 2&3
-step1 stats and epidemiology
-kaplan videos by conrad fisher,surgery and obs/gynae
-uworld 2x ,+/- kaplan qbank

is the 3rd edition for MTB2 out???
