Stop Simplifying your plan

You don't need to do FA
If you don't believe me then read this First Aid for Step 2 CK

You don't need to do Qbook

Just finish your Psychiatry Kaplan Lecture Notes and then jump into Kaplan Qbank and then do USMLE World and then do NBME then go and take the exam.

Try to get the offline Kaplan Qbank for Step 2CK. Questions will help especially for Psychiatry.

Do questions for CK!
My advice is: try to get offline Kaplan Qbank then subscribe to online UW.

Wow, 2300 questions! I'm getting a one month subscription to UW next week before I take my CK this December. How many questions are you doing per day? When are you taking yours?

Any suggestions in how to approach UW?
