Planning Preparing for both CK and CS at the same time

I just took my step 1 exam two weeks ago and expect to get the result next Wednesday. Currently I am preparing for both CK and CS as I have scheduled my CS on June 8th. Honestly, I am not really confident taking CS without completing CK first but I am working hard to make it. I've been studying CS for about a week and I am thinking of allocating 3-4 hours a day to review some CK materials, preferably in the morning, then practising CS cases for the rest of the day with my study partner. I need your suggestion guys if this plan is doable or better stick with CS first ?

My resources for step 2 CK are :
FYI, I did Kaplan Diagnostic Test (150 questions) this morning and supprisingly I got 80%. Do you think that Kaplan Diagnostic test is easier than the real exam or it's my step 1 foundation that helps me getting this score ?

I really appreciate any comments, thanks
