Hey all,
I took my step-1 last week and have to start my step-2 preparation.I have kaplan lecture notes for all subjects and kaplan Q-book. Pls tell, what r the other materials i need for my preparation.
Thanks in advance.



I think all what you have for notes is enough.
If you want references for IM use CMDT
You can also use Blueprint as an alternative to Kaplan .

Hope this helps smiling face
