Wink Its CK time now..

Hello guys, Jumping from step 1 forum
Got step 1 result yesterday. Bit disappointed but happy that i passed.
Now i will be disturbing you guys for few months during my CK prep. Hope you guys don't mind.
So i want to gear up with my CK prep and want to discuss my intended plans.

Duration- 3 months
Material- KLN and videos for IM, peads and gyn/obs (selected topics), MTB 2 for IM, surgery, MTB 3 for peads, gyn/obs, surgery, FA step 1 for few topics and psychiatry.
Now few quires-
Which qbank or qbook i should use while doing my first read of KLN?
suggestions regarding change in study material?
When to start doing UW???

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks

Congrats on finishing step 1 man...saw your result and u ended up with the same thing as me ....completely agree about the dumb mistakes on step 1! ah well live and you learn, lets get 230 + on this one!!

Your plan is good but I'm not sure u can do all of kaplan in only 3 months time...i myself haven't gotten thru even all of MTB yet and its been 2-3 months...but then again i haven't been putting 100 percent effort...but whatever works for u...i would suggest starting world early...many people say that its best to do it twice then do 2 different banks....and a lot of stuff is from step 1 so its good ur going straight into it

Hey thanks for your reply,
Ya even I think 3 months won't be enough but I want to pressurize myself to do in 3 months but lets see how things go.
I also read lot of people review that doing UW twice is more effective.
I got UW 2011 offline. So. Think I will be doing that with my first prep and then do online UW in random mode.

Good luck!

Hi guys!

I am so glad to see you all here...I am also planning to start preparing for Step 2 Ck sometime next week when I will arrive home. I have bought MTB 2 (last edition) and MTB 3 and Kaplan lecture notes 2008-2009. My only problem is that I cannot find all the videos. Do you guys have a link where I can find all of them? I am also planning to spend 3 months for studying for Ck.

Good luck and stay in touch!

I started with KLN IM + MTB 2+ fisher videos.
it's Step up To Medicine book which was published in 2012. so i didn't want to go through kaplan notes cause they are 2009versions. there is no superhigh difference but i like books in outline format (like RR patho).
i personally suggest to use 2012 version of MTB CK i haven't seen the previous eddition but i'm sure fisher adds new stuff in new releases.

i'm basically using MTB CK like FA for step1. gonna put everything in it(from STUM,Fishers leqtures,MTB3 other subject KLNs and uw for sure).

i'm using the same material as you for rest all subjects except for step up to medicine for I.M(using kaplan and mtb ck[2012] instead)....i hope they are sufficient

so how do you feel abt. step up to medicine book...as you're comparing it to RR goljan for patho(which is very necessary for step 1 than kaplan patho)....any advices...?

mtb is master the boards(by conrad fischer).....as heard from many mtb2 is used for internal medicine and mtb3 is used for rest all subjects of ck.....many says f.a is not needed for ck and mtb2 should be used for ck like f.a for step1....but it's just my opinion ofcourse wait for others too....goodluck

thats why i asked later..because doing all stuff takes alot of time. i am over with reading all (KLN, MTB2,3 --twice) and UW almost over now all set to go for KLN qbank anytime soon..asked many folks its always better to do as much problems as you can.

Hey,

First off, best of luck with the exam.
Secondly, since you have read all the material I can really use your help. Did you find that reading KLN was helpful on top of MTB 2 and 3? I dont have as much time as you to study for this exam and really need to prioritize my resources. Did you add a lot from KLN to MTB 2 and 3? or do you think MTB 2+3 is enough as a complete resource?

Thank you so much!

U will do great just study all of the resources that you have now. KLN are too much if you have short period of time to study. Good luck. I'm sure you will do great. You already are using 4 books to study....

FA 8th is solid however be careful about too many resources. I tell everyone I think the most important things is doing lots of q's!

since time is a factor..i too think reading KLN would tax you alot more of time..and readingMTB 2,3 would suffice needs and doing questions matter far more than reading stuff..having bad step 1 experience so will suggest take time to do MTB and UW, KLNqbank , in total.

Hey guys!

Good luck to everyone studying for Step 2 Ck!

I started doing Cardiology and Gastroenterology a couple of days ago. I first listen to Conrad Fisher's videos in which he tells the same information as written in Kaplan lecture notes and then I go over MTB 2. My only problem is that I need to speed up a little bit...because time is running out and I would like to take the test in the beginning of May.

I also want to register for the exam, that means I have to pay 820$ (it is not 790$ anymore) and to do the online registration form. Hope I will have no problems and everything will go smooth!

I will keep updating my progress! Now time to study!

Default Just started..

Hi guys,
I am also starting the preparation for the CK, would take it in May I hope. I was wondering if the offline UW you are talking about is the one circulating over the internet with the name "Usmle World 2011 Qbank" in a 2GB folder with subjects are in pdf files each, with internal med in 2 files?.
Thanks

i only have 10 weeks to prepare for the exam so I'm reading MTB step2. Then I'll do uworld. then go over MTB step2 2 more times while doing questions. If i still have time i'll try to read MTB step3 for the non-internal medicine subjects.

Warning! Step 1 over step 2 on!

I am gonna get my step 1 result this Wednesday. Lets see how it goes.
Meanwhile I have formulated a plan.
Will do Kaplan Lec notes and keep annotating stuff from KLN to MTB2 and then will revise MTB2 and make it my primary book. Then UW and MTB2 revision and give the exam. Is it fine? Or do I need MTB3 or FA or anything else as well?? Please guide!!
