The answer is that "everyone is different". I've heard of people taking it prior to their intern year, at the end of their intern year, and of course later. It really just depends. The main thing is to take it very very seriously. It is a hard test. Use study materials available such as Kaplan/UWorld/Among many others.

I would study as long as you can for it, but typically a few months should be enough preparation if you are currently in residency.
