Fire Thread Help ! Step 3 in PGY1- Tips please!!

Hi all,
I am starting my IM residency in Jul 2016. I gave my Step 2 ck in Aug 2015 which was in 220s. So, it has been a while since I read for USMLE as I currently work full time.

My Qs
1) How long should I prepared before giving step 3? I aim to score 230+ at the least
2) Which rotations/ month is the best time to take step 3 in PGY1?
3)How long should I subscribe UW for step 3?

I am sure quite some people will be in the same situation as me. Any thoughtful advice is highly appreciated.
The Journey of thousand miles begins with a single step.
