Default Time needed for medical students to prepare for the CK Exam

This poll is dedicated for medical students. For medical graduates please see this http://www.usmle-forums.com/usmle-st...step-2-ck.html

It's also nice if in addition to voting in the poll you mention some details about your prep process, like how many hours per day and what year during med school you did the CK exam.

Warning! it takes years

I bet you mean that the concentrated pre-exam prep.. right?
Because otherwise the student starts preparing from day one in med school until the second year holiday
Some students even start preparing even before medical school

Yes, exactly. That's what's meant with this poll. It's the focused concentrated cramming before the exam date. Thanks for the clarification.
