Question Step 2 CK last month prep advices?

Hey guys,

I am an IMG in europe and Ive been following the forum for quite a while and its been helping me with alot of my studies. Im planning to take my exam in mid december, and since its my last month of prep im getting a little lost of what else i can cover or do. I cant say that i feel prepared, but then again I dont think such a feeling ever exists. The only feeling you can have is that youve studied and done everything possible.

Here's what I've done:

Kaplan notes (a few times over with videos)
MTB 2 (cant say i covered every section, i mostly used it for internal, but also as an outsource reference for other subjects although to me they appeared quite lacking)
FA - covered it at least a good 2 times, though i read some sections multiple times just to be sure

as for the Qbanks: I finished my UWorld and in the next 2 days I will finish UsmleRx. Would anybody recommend kaplan at this point? Because I was thinking just to purchase another UWorld set instead.

as for tests: Ive done so far 1 UWSA, and 2 NBMEs (2,3...taking 4 this weekend)

Any input would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

I would suggest to do Kaplan Qbank as well ...

I am done with UW and now doing Kaplan Q bank ... I noticed that Kaplan has a lot of important info which UW have not ... Kaplan is useful too, however, many students do not like Kaplan .. so it is up to you.
Good luck

Ideally its great to start with kaplan qbank and then go on to uworld. ive tried kaplan for a few blocks and it seemed to really help you sink in the kaplan concepts, though i found UWorld better and more challenging in terms of connecting your concepts and coming up with an answer...and also in terms of latest questions that have been tested. It seems uworld isnt so restricted to only testing kaplan material and thats why i like it.
