Question 208 prediction in NBME 4 before studying...

Hi everyone! I would really appreciate some advice about my situation. I took step 1 at the end of last year and got 261 and now I'm planning to take step 2 CK. I took NBME 4 before even starting to study to see where I'm standing at and got a 360 (predicting a score of 208).

I would want to know how to exactly use this information. My goal would be to try to get a score similar to my step 1 one with the least preparation time as possible. The idea would be to study for about 3-4 months. I just bought MTB 2 and 3 and I'm about to start doing UWorld right from the beginning and use it as my main resource. I intentionally didn't bought KLNs becouse I think that they could really prolong my preparation time. Any suggestions about that?

The key question would be whether you think that UWorld + MTB 2 and 3 (plus FA graphs and some other mix of things) would be enough to get my score from 208 (prediction) to at least 250 in less than 4 months or if I should consider giving some place to KLNs or other similar long stuff. Also please tell me about any other material you think that I should consider for my plan.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Best wishes,
