Default How much time needed for CK prep if you are done with Step 1?

I was wondering if there is a poll where we could vote how much time is needed to study for CK with a step 1 ALREADY TAKEN.

Thanks!

Well the problem was the title, which is now fixed from the administrators. Some have answered! It would be great if this poll is also moved in the recommended threads because many students take step2 after step1 and the existing poll about step2 prep doesn't address this information, so the results are a bit confounded ;-)

2-4 months should be enough
If you did Step 1 well, you'll see CK very very easy

what about someone like me? i did ok (62% UW, 60% kaplan, 83 NBME 7) with mock exams but screwed up the real exam with a 75/188. how long do i need? i was thinking perhaps a yr (3 times kaplan, 3 times FA, 2 times step2 made ridiculously easy). does that sound ok?

If you have done Step 1 then you will really find the CK prep incredibly easy and the poll results are speaking for themselves

Surely, this would vary greatly depending on how well you did on the Step 1 and what score you aim for in step 2?
