Question Core rotations before doing the Step 2 ck

Hey guys
Before I begin prepping for step 2 ck, I wanted to know what rotations should you be done with before you can start studying for step 2? Where I come from, the clinical years are 3. I'm planning on doing the exam at the end of the 2nd year. By then, I will be done with surgery (Thoracic, plastic, urology, general, ortho, neurosurgery, anesthesiology) medicine, OB/GYN, pediatrics, opthalmo, and ENT. Will it be ok to do it then? In other words, when is the best time to do step 2 ck?

If you have finished Internal Medicine Rotation then you are ready, no need to wait for the other rotations.
