From your profile I can see that you already pass Step 1, in that case I suggest you start the qbank right away after finishing one reading of Kaplan, you don't need two readings.

I second that. CK is all about analyzing questions and ruling out differential diagnosis. Books don't help much. Jump right into the questions after a single reading!

Dude, first of all, FA is not helpful for step2. Also, if you took step 1 and go for 2 (like I do now) trust me, one good reading of kaplan will suffice. Then go for UW. If you see that you re below 60% do a second read in your weak areas. Me, i scored 243 in step 1 in november, i read kaplan once, and now i hit 72% in uw (have done around 600 qs till know). I have kaplan notes open and re-read any subject that i see i score low (i.e OBGYN for me and surgery)
