Planning 1.5 months left

Hi all

SO here is the situation :
I am done with step 1 and Cs .. I hope to catch the 2012 match season so i scheduled my step 2 exam in late July .. hopefully the results will be out in time for my ECFMG certificate be to issued before Sep. 1st .

I started reading Kaplan lecture notes 2 months ago . In a couple of days I'll be finishing my second read. this leaves me with about one and a half month before my exam date .. what are your suggestions for this period?

I kind of have narrowed the possibilities down to 3 :
1- study Ethics, Biostat and Psychiatry for tow weeks followed by 1 month of UW ( In these three subjects, I am counting on my experience in step 1 which was 4 months ago plus UW .. I didn't study any book yet )
2- start Kaplan QB offline ( i want pay for it .. not again ) for two weeks followed by UW for 1 month
3- start UW right away for almost 6 weeks with concomitant revision from Kaplan lecture notes

which one of these choices seems more usefull to you? any new possibilities are welcome!

help people
