    At my school we take step 1 after 3rd year. I will sit for step 1 the first week of May.

    However, I planned my 3rd year with Peds and IM last, and since I have done very well on all my shelf exams for 3rd year, I planned on sitting for step 2 CK 2 weeks after ending my rotations (1st week of April).

    I've been studying step 1 and step 2 material for awhile, but I was wondering how much step 1 material (biochem intricacies etc) to expect on step 2.

    You see essentially no biochem, histo, or micriobio entricacies. The envelope status of a particular virus is unlikely to be tested. UW questions alone will prepare you well for Step 2CK after a year of shelf exams. They're primarily diagnosis, workup, and simple management questions.
