Good day all,
Am an orthopaedic surgeon planning on starting USMLE preparation. I haven't taken any step as yet. I would like to start with step 2 ck , cuz it's more clinical and the topics are more in line with another exam that I would like to take.
What are your views about it.

Also, I have no idea where to start, nor to do i have any study material as such.
Can you guys suggest me what books and other materials to procure to start preparing for my exams ?

Many thanks in advance

If you are in USA or Europe or Australia, all of these can found on amazon.com
Keep in mind that MTB 2CK and MTB 3 3rd edition just came out so pay attention to price range. The older editions will be cheaper.

Uworld and Kaplan Qbanks are online subscription based. You can get them on their official sites. Make sure to search for coupons as they would cut down the price of the subscription considerably.
