All I did was UW and reading certain specific topics from FA CK/Step Up/Wikipedia/Medscape over 2 months. 1-2 blocks of UW per day. I had good prep from Step 1 and did well on all my clinicals. I'm a non-US IMG. I finished each block with about 15 minutes left (!!!), so I had ample time to go back and re-check every single question, though I changed very few answers. Certainly there were some tricky questions but it felt a lot fairer than Step 1 (more reasoning in CK vs. more memorization of specific details in Step 1).
Also felt the exam was perfectly doable. I'm glad I only paid for the two months of UW and UWSA, it was more than enough. Will eventually post back in about 2 weeks with my score.
Can you please tell me how did you decide which topics to read from comprehensive sources like Medscape? Thanks!
