Help Preparing for a CS Date

I will take my step1 in march and I am planning to take CS soon after that
Is one month enough to prepare for CS? like say in April? I have not taken CK, do you need to know CK knowledge?

I hear that one month is enough time to prep for CS. i do think you need a bit of clinical knowledge to know what qs to ask, what differentials to consider and what test to order, but people say is mostly about being polite, having empathy, being respectful and confident. pls take my words with a pinch of salt as i am yet to take cs myself, i am prep for it,
all the best
its best you send a pm to someone who has taken the test and passed
