Thank you for your advice. But may I ask the following: I read somewhere in this forum that Kaplan Books for step 2 are necessary as some topics are not adequately covered in MTB II and III. What do you think about this opinion?


Thank you for your time.

Kaplan is good for obs gyn and surgery..but not totally necessary...for all other subjects if you feel that u need to supplement mtbs with something go for FIRST AID or SECRETS.. this is my personal opinion..rest depends upon how much time u have..if you have 4 months or more to prepare u can definitely read Kaplan otherwise use mtb 2 & 3..

im starting CK prep too! i was wondering the same about KLP videos and books, i only have 2-3months for prep!

do you think the videos are worth it?
i have the 2007 edition, and its like 150h total! i think is is a lot of time! and i have a friend that told me to watch them, but i dont know!

what book do you prefer? FA CK or secrets?
did you read KLP lectures notes? are they necessary for a high score?

Thanks
