Question Time needed for second round UW and MTB

i have been preparing for step 2 ck for a month and a half now. finished my first read of mtb 2 and 3 and my first round of uworld. i was planning to take ck so i apply for this year.. how much time do i need to do a second round of uworld and revising mtbs? are 3,4 weeks enough?
i am also stressed about my cs result that is going to be out in 2 days i havnt been studying so much because of it. is it normal?! i am also a little dejected with my step 1 score 218

I would say half the time of your first round...so if it took you 6 weeks for one round plus MTB 2 and 3, it would take you 3 weeks

thanks for the reply.. i got nobody to talk to about this stress of mle so this forum works alot for me!

one more question? whats the best way to do the 2nd round? should i do the questions/the blocks aagain and plus subject wise reading of mtb's? there are also sooo many questions from f.a step 1 in uworld esp pharma,micro,immuno...so i need to give in a lot of time doing f.a too? or should i just leave it at the end? and when is the best time to take an NBME? thanks in advance!!!!!

u can either complete a read of mtb,s and u.w notes u made,,,along with daily 1 to 2 block of 2 world....then take the nbme (am doing this,ll take nbme at end of this month...IA)
or if u hv enough days u.w subscription of u.w,then complte ur read of mtb and u.w note u made....then start 2nd rond of u.w4>>> take nbme then.
its up to u...........

well the first round i got around 70%..i just used uworld for prep tool actually. used to do questions with a single read of mtb.. honestly even if i didnt read mtb i could do the questions because there are so many general questions and esp step 1 knowledge applies in sooo many questions. i wonder if the real deal is similar to this too!!

i think i am gonna do mtb and uworld notes read plus atleast 2 blocks per day..i dont have much time.was planning to take ck early..but i m also awaiting my cs result that is now delayed cant really concentrate on ck but hoping for the best!!! good luck to you tooo!! i will also take nbme inshaALLAH by the end of august!!
