Planning Step 2CK Prep

hi guys, i need help/advice badly.

i looked up all the chapters in the step2ck kaplan lecture notes n made a timetable accordingly. the thing is with internship now i can at most squeeze 4 to 6 hrs of study a day. perhaps on weekends (when im not on call id be able to do an 11hr study). so with that in mind n repeating the kaplan lecture notes once (total 2 readings), id be able to complete the study by JULY 2011.

then ill spend a month on UW n see how much my score improves, only then register for the exam.

in sept start kaplan Qbank (online) + NBME (2 banks) --> if all goes well ill schedule the exam for oct or if i havent got the permit, for nov. before the exam ill do more NBMEs.

while studying kalpan lecture notes, ill be reading step2ck FA (just once), USMLE step 2 made ridiculously easy (just once), and doing the kaplan offline qbank. i will also do n obgyn questions from FA qbooks. ill also be doing NMS qbook questions (20 sets of 50 questions) n LANGE qbook questions.

so all in all this is what ill cover:

- kaplan lecture notes (read twice)
- FA (read once)
- step 2 made ridiculously easy (read once)
- qbook for obgyn
- qbook for
- kaplan qbank offline
- NMS qbook
- LANGE qbook
- kaplan qbank online
- UW

my questions are:

- is my schedule good enough (what to do to improve it)?
- is the kaplan qbank offline EXACTLY same as the online one or will it change by 2011? in other words, would i need to purchase kaplan ONLINE qbank?
- which NBMEs are good? (or should i do it all?)
- has anyone done 3 readings of the kaplan notes? should i do 3 instead of just 2?
- should i read FA more than once?

thx so much in advance for the guidance.
