Default Reading sequence for Kaplan lecture notes for step 2 CK

Hello everyone. I just passed step 1 and I'm about to start reading for step 2 CK. Is there an order or reading sequence to follow for Kaplan lecture notes for step 2 Ck? Or should I just read the books in any order I want? I am an IMG and plan to take the test in about 5 or 6 months. Thanks!

Although specific sequence doesnot matter much but i would suggest that you do pediatrics immediately after medicine whenver you do it, the rest of subjects are you personal choice on how to sequence them.

I am currently going through Kaplan just going through it as it shows up to me. In my opinion I don;t think it really matters as long as you get it done. That being said my friends and I always come down to the same debate. Some of my friends say whatever you are good at do it first just to fill in any little blanks. Then go through whatever subjects you are poor at later but spend more time on them to improve in that area. I am going through it straight just because I am not sure exactly which part I need to focus on most so going through it straight then when I start doing questions see where I need the most help and can read through those areas again with any notes I am taking. Not sure if this really helps you or not but I hope so. Good luck studying!

I just started with step 2 prep. I have less than 4 months so im planning to do internal medicine in the end since it makes up majority of the exam so i want it to remain fresh in my mind especially when i do UW. On another note does anyone have any idea how much of step 1 shows up in the CK exam? Any particular topics that they ask from it? Is anatomy, biochem finally out of my life??
