i found this forum to be very helpful when preparing for step1 and 2 ck. i did the usmle step 1 and 2 ck resently and want to share my preparation process. It took me 2 month for each step. i got 239 and 246.
I did Qbanks on a daily basis for 2-3h the entire two month. That paid off very well 'cause the real exam is just MCQs. So that was the best preparation and i would highly recommend that. Thats what i used:
Kaplan qBank (http://www.kaptest.com - good quality, plus additional resources if u have that time)
rexmedicus (www.rexmedicus.com - good quality, very cheap)
usmle world (www.usmleworld.com - same as kaplan, but slightly cheaper, no additional resources)
Same time i reviewed most topics by reading/testing some of the following resources
1st month: used mainly resource material like First Aid book, doctors in training videos, Goljan and firecracker to review topics. I did the following each day: viewed half of DiT videos of one day (so i needed double the time of what DiT proposed) and worked on the according
used the qBanks 5-6 hrs each day, and studied 2-3 hrs with the above resources like 1st month.
Perseverance is key for those exams! Better do less a day but stick with doing something every day. Good luck!
