I went on their website and this is what i found: "No Step may be taken sooner than 60 days after your previous test date. For Step 1 and Step 2 CK, you may retake the Step no earlier than the first day of the month that begins at least 60 days after your previous test date.."

not that i'm planning on failing it....but just wondering. so if i took my exam JUNE 30 as opposed to July 1, would it really matter since in either case I would have to wait 60 days and wait until the BEGINNING of the month (if that's how you're supposed to interpret this rule).


p.s Just confused on the wording, never heard something like this before.
