anyone study for BOTH Step 2 CK and the CS at the same time? or is it better to study and take the CS, and then focus on the Step 2 CK after? im going to try and post-match 2006. im studying for both my CS and Step 2 CK right now. i was thinking of taking my CS in a couple weeks, but might postpone until i've done some more Step 2 CK review (anyone else feel like the CK review might help for the CS?). i read somewhere that to make the match for ག CS i should be done by dec 31st. i feel like studying BOTH and trying to find a CS spot 1st or 2nd week of Dec, and then reviewing only Step 2 CK material and taking it 1st week of Feb.



I'm doing the same thing and I have the CS exam in a couple of weeks so I'll let you know soon if it it workssmiling face

Step 2 CS and step 2 CK have different objectives: one is a communication skill exam (with the patient through the history-taking and with peers through patient note) and the other is a clinical medicine knowledge test. So, for step 2 CS doing the FA minicases to jog one's memory and practicing the Kaplan and UW cases with a study partner is enough, in my opinion. Of course, reading for step 2 CK is going to help but I think you can do without it. Best of luck with your exams.
