Think about this: a bad score in step 2 will negate the efforts you put into step 1, effectively making both scores useless. STUDY!

Okay I dont want to be rude to you. But if you dont study, you wont pass. The exam is very tough and you need to prepare yourself. DO not take CK lightly. You gota pick yourself up and study. Secondly, you need to find the right book to motivate you. For me, Uworld worked better than MTB. Third, make a schedule and follow it strictly. Fourth, reward yourself whenever you finish a target eg. watch a movie with friends etc.

Learn from my mistake
I was too relaxed to study for CK so I took the UWSA a day before my exam and my score wasn't good.
I ended up paying the rescheduling fee and moved my exam.
Now I have motivation!.
You don't want that to happen to you...
So study now!
