    Congrats! Glad to see you earned a score you're happy with. It's important to note here that you're not the first one to mention that Kaplan Q bank didn't help.

    You went through MTB quite a few times. Were you able to look at First Aid at all? What did you think of MTB overall in terms of depth and completeness?

    Also, was it worthwhile to go through UWorld twice?

    Congrats again.

    Hello guys ,, an old IMG....needs head up on materials for step 2 CK.,
    Beckers lectures or kaplan? And which year notes..
    Many thanks

    Personally i really recommend doing UWORLD and Master the boards 2-3 that should be enough. you can read your specific weak points AFTER doing UW. That is my opinion though.

    I'm pretty rusty . Please which year kaplan videos and books did u use..is there a recent release.
    I'm hoping the ones I've got aren't outdated. I learnt Uworld and mtb are sufficient but since am an old IMG, I'd prefer to awaken the memory with some up to date videos and books
    I'd appreciate any advise.

    Thanks.. I won't mind adding videos lectures. Old IMG and rusty would u recommend any

    i dont think video lectures or books could be outdated quickly. especially if you use them just for a quick warm up, and support with recent UW and MTB. I would use what ever i could find/afford. Do all of the NBME s.

    Hi guys don't mean to piggy back off this comment. But I'm currently an IMG student at a not very strong school. And would like advice on how to tackle on STEP. I'm currently in beginning of my 2nd year.

    At the moment, I have been working on firecracker daily and of course following First Aid with my course work not to mention the USMLE content outline just to make sure i dont miss anything.

    My school is by semester and by the end of MED 2 they have a NBME exam which is customized by the school. So in other words i need at least a 215 by the end of this year. Any advice or help would be really appreciated.
