Default Advice for a 240+ score

Is MTB 2 for IM and MTB 2 + 3 for the others enough for a 240+ score on the CK? I also plan on doing uworld and kaplan qbank. I'm currently doing cardiology, watching the Conrad Fischer videos from 2001 (old i know!) and reading MTB 2 on the side. Is kaplan lecture notes a must do for a good score? Note i'm not asking about passing, i need a 240+ score. I've done extensive research on various forums online, but no where have i found a proper answer with respect to getting a good score.

People who have gone through the CK, advice and suggestions please?

Yes of course you can get 240+ with MTB2 and MTB3 ... but no guarantees
a if u r truly aiming for 240+ and u have enough time no need to risk it , a better plan will be kaplan lecture notes plus videos and U world + - MTB for revision if u master those 240+ will be guaranteed inshallah ( BTW i didn't take the exam yet and this is my personal opinion and from previous examinee experiences , and it's what i'm doing so it may not work for you ,but it worked for many examinee before)
waiting for others opinions

For step 2 CK, books are not as important. UW will be the one that will "make you or break you".
Do MTB 2/3 + UW, multiple times, and you'll reach your goal.

Source: my medschool roommate, he studied UW twice and MTB 2/3 around 5 times and ended up with a score of 247.

P.S. this of course is intended for people with step 1 up their sleeves.

Yeah, that does sound appealing! Not to mention saves some time, because the kaplan notes are quite voluminous! Uworld long term subscription it is then!
