Help Help for Step 1 preparation in 3 months

Hi everyone,

I'm a european IMG, I was doinf a research fellowship here in the USA, and before leaving, I was asked to consider applying for residency THIS year !

I had no steps, and am therefore preparing Step 1. Goal: december.

Hopefully, a spot for 2CS will be available before december 31st. Then I plan on studying 6 weeks for 2CK, and take it end of january/early february. All this is to be able to be part of the match (deadline feb 26).

My residency is 90% secured. They will interview me without my scores, without any steps. I just need to pass.


Step 1: so far, I have done +/- 800 questions Uworld and am reading FA. Do i have time to watch Kaplan videos ? Do i need other resources ? Should I just focus on FA and Uworld ?

Thanks for your feedback,
