Planning Am I in the right path?

Hi,

Well I ended my 1st reading of Kaplan lecture notes and I solved all kaplan qbank (offline) in 3 months and I have 2 months remaining for my exam.
I will take 1 month usmle world QBANK in April
(and they advise me to take 2 blocks per day all random subject and timed) and to write my notes after ending the block or I have to open my Kaplan lecture notes and read the topic with reading the questions explanation? and if I didn't find the topic or idea of question I will write notes?)
I also heard that at 1st I will get not good marks then I will progress in UW?

and 1 month remain for me so i need advise what to do in the last month ? take usmle world self assessment or NBME 2 ? or only repeat usmle world qbank again to memorize it?

i have a SCHEDULING PERMIT and I did not choose a day in May so either 23 MAY or 30 MAY i will choose
so any further advise ?

am I in the right path

I would suggest taking an NBME now, then another after four weeks of UWorld, then NBME 6 two weeks before and NBME 7 one week before.

I know it's expensive ($50 per NBME), but I think it's worth it in the long run...

Good luck!

There's only four NBMEs, no 5,6, or 7. this is CK not Step 1

As far as the question of whether to do UW twice, I recently answered that in Step 1 Forum here USMLE World Twice or UW + Kaplan QBank and I have the same opinion with regard to Step 2 CK prep.

Try to separate your multiple questions into different threads so that each thread is specific about a single topic, that way you'll get more responses.
