Did you take any UWSA/NBME before your exam?
How did you score in UWORLD?
I think you should start by mastering the notes and going through UWORLD. Use NBME to see how your prep is going. USe UWSA right before your exam to get a better idea of how you might do in the real thing. Do as many questions as you can, this exam is tricky but iA you will get through it!

This is the website for uworld.
Take the QBANK subscription for CK. Take the self assessment exam at the very very end to get an idea of what your real exam score would be like, as most people agree that this exam most accurately reflects your true performance on the real exam:
http://www.usmleworld.com


This is the website for NBME self assessment exams:
http://www.nbme.org/students/sas/sas.html


The newest NBME is supposed to reflect the current CK exam pattern most accurately, so leave that till the very end of your prep. The rest you can do for practise.
Good luck!

kaplan lecture notes is the best
master the boards 2/3 are good too. I would recommend reviewing step 1 first aid also to brush up on basic step 1 knowledge. its very easy and quick if you have already done step 1
