Nobody can do it in less than 2 months!

It starts from day one
 
Prep starts from day one in school and ends after finishing the third or fourth trimester.
But if you are asking about the focused pre-exam prep then yes these options seem right.

It takes 2 years at least
 
Medical students will never be able to prep fully for USMLE Step 1 within these proposed options.
They start day one with the exam in the back of their heads and keep reading for at least full 4 semesters before taking it.
That's the story in US at least

* i am aiming for 250+ (i want to do surgery)

I think you have to do one subject and calculate the same time for each subject plus some time for tests may be the same amount.

I have been preparing for more than 6 months, it really depends on " how do you prepare"
