Right now I am studying "passively" and I still haven't had the chance to get serious, my crappy university is holding me back lol. Whenever I finish a chapter in first aid, I solve some usmlerx questions, I'll have more time to prepare around March and I think your plan makes lots of sense, I think I'll start with UW first then kaplan then uw again.

You are eying August to take the exam, right? I will graduate in August and I am aiming to take it in September/October. Best of luck for both of us!
