I started this journey 2 years ago, and here I am, almost done. Don’t waste your time, PLAN and ACT. Make mistakes, learn from your mistakes, that’s how it works.
It’s DOABLE, very very very very very doable. Very doable. Please 😅.

—The best way to prepare for step 2 CK is to prepare well for step 1.
—UW + Amboss qbank are enough (cover almost everything).
—The exam didn’t feel difficult, but felt fresh and unique, nothing new in terms of concepts tho.
—Kaplan books are the best books for CK imo (different story for step 1 👎), used em for ob/gyn and some surgery after one round of uw and amboss and recognizing my weaknesses which made it really easy to read in like 5 days a book (I tried almost all CK review books, none worked).
