Search Step 2CK preparation

So finally am here writing my CK experience
Duration of preparation - 7 months
Kaplan videos with notes followed by solving .Kaplan q bank. Kaplan q bank helped me remember concepts of Kaplan.
After finishing the review of Kaplan I finally started with MTB 2 for medicine and MTB 3 for the rest.
Then finally started with U World in mixed random timed mode. Adjusted quite well and felt better as time passed.2 blocks a day making sure I reviewed it the same day making my notes.At the end I went through all the questions from the blocks again.
Then followed it with Kaplan diagnostic test followed by nbme 1 then nbme 4.
At the end did Kaplan simulated exam 1 and 2 .both these tests helped me build my 8 hour stamina and also small points which I used to forget.
and at the end solved uwsa and free 150.Kept reviewing my notes till I finished with NY exam.

Congrats on getting it done and Good luck for the results.
One question: How much surgery was there on the test and how much of it was outside of UW/Kaplan/MTB.
