Can I ask you why you are doing CK before Step 1?
This is a mistake.
You have to do Step 1 first.
You cannot understand clinical concepts before building the proper pathophysiology grounds.

What residency program asks for CK result without Step 1? All residency programs in USA ask for ECFMG certification which means that you have to pass all exams.
Anyway, if you insist, then I suggest you read Kaplan Lecture Notes thoroughly and do the videos and also do as many questions as you can from Kaplan Qbank, USMLE World, and USMLERx.
When you read you have to pay particular attention to pathophysiology concepts as these are tested more and more in CK exam.

Good luck

That's interesting.
I also found a hospital in Saudi Arabia that asks applicants to have CK results :rolleyes:
It seems that the world is really Americanized :p
