Default Passed Steps 1, CK, & CS with usmle success academy

I have been using this forum for quite some time now to seek advice regarding my prep for the Steps and I wanted to provide some feedback to everyone on this forum on the choices I made that helped me get through Steps 1, CK, and CS:

Step 1: I began with the USMLE Success Academy's Online course first and used UWorld along with it as they had recommended. After approximately 6 weeks of this, I attended the Success Academy's 4 week Live course in Chicago and also completed my second run through of UWorld. After the 4 week Live course I took some additional time to review my notes from the Success Academy and UWorld and I also went through the First Aid and Pathoma. I achieved a score of 247 with this approach and my first NBME exam score during my self study was only a 169, so a huge improvement.

Step 2 CK: I used the USMLE Success Academy's Step 2 CK Online course for 8 weeks along with UWorld. I achieved a score of 236, but I didn't take any practice NBME exams this time before I began.

Step 2 CS: I took the USMLE Success Academy's 5 day Step 2 CS Live course in Chicago and I practiced with my cousin (he took the same course with me) for an additional 10 days afterwards using their materials and the training we received, along with some light reading from the First Aid, and we both passed on our 1st attempt with high marks.

I was skeptical at first to take the USMLE Success Academy because they have not been around as long as other courses like Kaplan, but the members on this forum helped me make some great decisions and I am forever grateful to the community of wonderful people here and also to the amazing staff and instructors at the USMLE Success Academy.
