Question Is Uworld + MTB enough?

Hello everyone. My question is whether for internal medicine MTB 2 chapters and MTB 3 for the rest is enough along with U world for step 2ck? I have already watched kaplan videos. Also can I skip kaplan lecture notes?Thanks in advance.

Yes, it is enough but you may need to combine MTB 2+3 for all subjects since there are things in one book which are absent in the other.

i am reading FA and finding it to be good..infact i quite like the presentation..but i think a lot depends on how much time you have..i've referred to it for some topics and it has almost all the info..no surgery though..i wud say u can always go through the tables and pictures and side notes if you have some time to spare..but these things also get covered in the uworld ultimately so in the end everything narrows down to mtb2 mtb 3 and UW..

I havent done the exam yet and therefore Im not very eligible to answer that question accurately, but I think FA alone and U world may not be enough. You will have a hard time remembering all the details in FA. My plan is to read MTB 2 and 3 twice and after that do my last reading of First aid. So its MTB 2 and 3 , FA and U world. I am doing this because my U world average was low. Hope this helps.
