Hey guys. Don't mean to bother anyone too much but I was hoping I can get some tips to study for Step 2 CK? I got a mid-230s on my STEP 1 so I'm hoping to do similarly or better on STEP 2CK. Throughout the year I've been performing at average (nationally) or slightly below for most of the SHELF exams. I believe this was due to me being very tired from rotations...poor excuse, I know. But my body can only take so much. Anyway, here are the resources I plan to use.

1. Online MedEd Lecture Notes
2. STEP UP 2 Medicine
3. UWorld 1 Pass (did ~90% during the school year)
4. USMLE STEP 2 Secrets

Does anyone have any tips for me? I had a hard time during 3rd year, but I luckily didn't fail anything yet. My 5.5 weeks of dedicated time begins in 2 weeks. Is this enough time for me to get a passing score? Anything else you recommend I study? During the schoolyear I did mostly OME and UWorld and some other random stuff specific to rotations. Thank you!

Abegini or something. I’m not using that anymore. It’s too much to go through when I also have UW and OME. So I’m gonna be using First Aid for STEP 2 CK.
