I have started pedes.only 50 pages done.none of other subjects done

I started to do U world qbank but don't how to tackle the qbank along with the syllabus.
My preparation for a Feb-March 2014 exam step 2ck..is going haywire.My motivation has become very low.I don't how to tackle this beast .

I had an okay score in step1 but had thought of scoring more in step 2.
I have no study partner also...

Any help would be vital for me.

Don't give up! That's that key point. Just remember, 10 -30% is step 1 material in Step 2Ck exam. The procedure is the same as Step 1. Read and do tons of questions. At the beginning, its a slow process and then you will be able to pick up your speed.

My advise is try to purchase the Kaplan High Yield step 2 ck course. In there, Conrad Fisher teaches it and he goes by using his MTB 2 textbook. It's similar to pathoma where he goes over his pathology book. It's also similar to DIT, Falcon and Rx where they each go over the FA book.

One thing I realised Uworld doesnt make much sense unless u finish one reading of everything... I have finished Kaplan and started doing uworld and not able to score beyond 55 or 60%.. MTB 2 And 3 seems to be the key... cause all answers are given there...

almost same situation here! finished IM n Psy only! Wana finish first read kaplan notes by end of this month n start Uworld asap! Don't waste time on videos except for things you don't understand. I've learnt from step 1 to do UW Mixed n timed mode as it is a learning tool. Don't worry about UW scores. Subject wise is time consuming and not very effective. Finish one read quickly of everything n start UW. It will give u confidence!

My Step 1 score is low but aiming for a high ck score! DONT GIVE UP.. THERE's STILL TIME!
