USMLE Books Is it a good idea to replace Kaplan notes with MTB-CK?

Hi guys,

I have bought Kaplan Lecture Notes, I found surgery so cool, and all the others are great but I like colorful books is it a good idea to do MTB-CK and FA + USMLE World, and Kaplan qbank and skip Kaplan notes?

Thanks a lot

Yeah why not, it's a great idea.
It's getting enough votes here Best USMLE Step 2 CK Review Books even though it was added after KLN and FA

Smile kaplan LN int med must for ck

hi...i m on the last month of my ck prep...truly speaking Kaplan lecture notes are awesome.....u just need to have patience for that....i split my book into parts according to the chapters...read them...listened to the videos and did u world....and added extra points and pages to my notes....and believe me it ws a lot of hard work but as i m revisin it u feel great with medicine....other subjects are okish in kaplan u cn have any book fr that..but my advice is just kaplan notes plus videos< if u have tym>...plus u wld 3 times each....surely u ll not only score u ll b a great doctor as well....MTBs are review books...just a short cut..u can see them in the last month....
gud luck
