First of all, this forum is really a great help to me to plan how to study for step one but there are some points I want to cover..

What are NBME forms?

What is the least number of hours per day compatible with an efficient study for step 1, (I can not have a full time study) ?

Is it helpful to have extra-reading from text books on crucial issues on step 1 , I know that the primary sources are Kaplan, Goljan, FA and review books (BRS, High Yield, MRS, NMS ...etc) ?

Scoring high on step1 and step 2 CK, can that make my chances better for residency, how high do I have to score and what is available when scoring like that?

Number of Hours per day?
Answer: It varies from one to another. If you read 2 hours per day you may need up to one year to get ready, if you read 10 hours per day you may need only 3 months to get ready. The following threads are helpful in this regard:

I also suggest you read the experiences of our members who recently took the exam, here's the link Threads Tagged with Step 1 Experience

Textbooks or Review Books?

How high the USMLE score should be?

In order to get into residency of your choice you need to score high in the USMLE. Generally speaking this means higher than 95.
