hi i want to ask u cs is on 4th feb,..and i didnt take the ck yet it wise to take the cs 1st? or ck....i have FA ,kaplan book and i will take UW...and how can i plan this 30 days for an effective prep...i dont have any partner should i go forward or give cs after ck..wht do u think? waiting for ur reply thanks


It is advisable to finish off CS as soon as possible - ECFMG is too slow to give out results and dates get tough later in the year - I myself took the CS before CK - I would advise taking CS even before Step 1 - you only need 15 days to study and is a relief to get done with it and study full steam for Step 2 CK..

FA and UW is a cool combo for CS
