Listening 30 Days CS Prep

Dear friends,
I am scheduled for CK exam early June and for CS early July,
so I have only 30 days to prepare for the CS

I would love to know if it is sufficient for passing the CS exam? I can't delay any of the two exams coz this will mess up my schedule for the 2014 match....

any feedback regarding a one month preparation? is it risky or ok?

4 weeks is the maximum , anything more is just trying to get stars on the right.

Completely doable! The format I followed was memorize the cases first. Then spent 3-4 days on perfecting my note and timing it. And then took up physical exam memorizing top to bottom. I also did Uworld cases, not sure how much it helped. For my exam FA was more than enough.

I've got about 4 weeks total to prep. A few people I know passed with 3-4 weeks of study time so that's what I went by mostly.

Good luck!
