Default Curtail step 2 study time from 5 to 4 months

I have also realized that the above schedule works for 5 months study. If you want to reduce your total study time -

1. Remove 15 days of Kaplan QBank - Although better than Step 1 Kaplan QBank, it appears that UW is more than enough and perhaps should be revised as much as possible.

2. In step #3 above, don't listen to lectures. Although helpful, they are very similar to the Kaplan books text. Give the books a quick read and skip the video lectures

3. #10 and #11 are certainly optional as you will be going back to these books as you do the UW questions.

This should bring your study time from 5 months (in the schedule above) to around 4 months (MINIMUM time you should give to this exam to score well, as suggested by all)

Please comment and critique!
