For ck I think it really depends if you have done step 1 recently and had prepared well for it. If so, 1-2 months should be enough, but take an NBME before you start to give yourself an idea of how far you are from your goal

Im not sure about how long for cs...im planning to take it 3 weeks after my step 2ck, and i think that should be plenty of time. But again i guess it depends what your baseline is...like if you need to add time if English isnt your first language or whatever
