No, gonna do CS in summer...
No time to relax!!! I want to finish with ALL Steps(including 3rd) by October 2014
I started CK 2 weeks ago...and Finished Ob/Gyn and this week doing Pediatrics which is very very BORING!!! And in Kaplan there is many little facts and i dont know how to go about them.

Yeah exectly like this
I read KAPLAN OB first with Videos in about 4 days and after did MTB3 for 2 days together with some Kaplan topics.
And same for the Gyn!!!

But i think its better to startf from Gyn and then do OB!!!

But not im doing pediatrics and its sooo much info in Kaplan and so little in MTB 3 and im not sure if i have to know ALL from Kaplan
