Default Time reqd for CS

So i have my CS scheduled in mid March. I have heard many people say that 2 weeks of prep is enough to clear this exam but recently i have seen many with better step 1&2 score than what i got failing CS. Also i do a 12 hour job where i am not allowed to study for USMLE. I dont think i can study for more than 3 hours a day,maximum 4. What i am asking is how much time is actually needed. And how to pull it off with my job.
Also what book to read? I just started preparing with the first aid.
Thank you.

Default This is what I am doing...

Hello there ! I have my CS in almost a month ie on 27 feb in chicago.. Well if you are good at the basics you can do with about 4-6 weeks..

First Aid/Kaplan/Uworld are the books I am referring to apart from you tube videos and all. The cases need to be inacted and the PN needs to be practiced. Thats just how it shud be, in a nutshell. PM me if u need further info !

cheers !
