Help How do I start CK prep?

Hi guys, I just got done with Step 1 finally and now looking forward to Step 2.

Should I start with Kaplan lecture notes or something else? I really have no idea about Step 2 My plan is to take it by the end of 2013. I would really appreciate it if someone could recommend a beginner's schedule that I can follow

Since you have plenty of time, you should start with KLN. I think a book a week (counting internal medicine as two books) will be a good first read.
Then focus on qbank and Master the Boards.
They say MTB 2 for internal medicine and MTB 3 for everything else. I have been reading both and that makes sense.
MTB are practically the KLN condensed.
I plan to do it this summer so i will jump straight to UW after a quick read of MTB. I bought the mobile versions of "Case Files" series but so far they seem a little outdated in the newest stuff. They are still good for a quick introduction before polishing with UW.
