Many pple first sit for atleast step one or step2CK to take step2CS, it is easier that way,coz then u know the diseases and symptoms .I think ask other fora pple and get their views on this. then u will be able to make an informed decision.for instance i did step 2ck first now i take CS in a week, in 2009 i sat for step one and didn't pass so after my CS am going to start reading for step one which i have already registered for ..perhaps will do it in march next year. You need abit of experience from either step one or step 2CK but get info from many pple abt this
