Smile When do I start doing questions

Step 1 is over! Now, I started studying for step 2. I'm reading through the kaplan lectures and MTB. Should I start doing questions now or once I'm done reading through all the material? What has worked for you guys?

Anyone? This is a serious question. With step 1 I felt like I misused my qbank, starting with random timed blocks on day 1 when I had yet to review anything. Also, would you recommend starting off with Kaplan or UWorld?

With step 2, you should start questions earlier, after the first read and use them to add to your knowledge... Assuming you are an IMG!

Do the questions as soon as possible. Do UW as many times as you can and use it as a learning tool.

Do you guys think uworld alone is enough, or would you recommend doing kaplan as well? Also, subject wise or random?
