1st it looks like you have not taken step one, Its a mistake to study for step 2 and take before step 1.

The people who say to take step 2 first are, well honestly wrong.

You have a greater chance of failing step 2 without the months of study for 1
If you pass step 2 then you still could ( many do) fail step 1.

Step one is a monster of a test and must first be tamed, besides a lot of the material you will study for 1 is on 2.

Honestly I'm trying to help.
