Listening Will it work if I take CS before CK

I just took Step1 in last Dec and plan to take CK in May and CS in July in order to catch the application for matching in Sep, 2012. Now I learn I need to take the CS before May 19, then it seems I need to switch the order of CK and CS, that is to take CS in May and CK in July. I am an IMG and haven't done clinical work for a long time, will it work if I take CS without passing CK? Is anyone has the experience to prepare CK and CS at the same time and take CS ahead of CK ? Any suggestions? Many thanks.
