It might be helpful for you to go over the questions in subject mode with your FA by your side (if you're using FA). I only used FA and UW for my prep and this review method worked well (I got a 242). This method basically helps to focus your mind on what you don't know by subject, and because it's more organized it can be helpful for memorization as well as linking knowledge together.

I tended to use my FA as a base for consolidation and I scribbled key points from UW on it as I did the questions, section by section. Again, this worked for me, but it would depend on your study timetable and your own style.

I know that you don't have plenty of time, but I'd try not to go over the content too quickly because then you may have difficulty remembering the information.

Good luck!

@abeer: I did actually mean Step 2CK. When I was starting to think about studying for this, I had an American IMG friend who just took the exam (and got 250+) just by using FA and UW. So, without thinking about it too much more, I just did the same.

I think I was comfortable with this because I was pretty confident about my clinical knowledge, having been a doctor for a few years. This may not be the best strategy if you're not as comfortable and need more in-depth reviews.
