    Hey all. So I have been studying for the past week for my Step 2 CK. My friend who recently took it (and did pretty well with a 235) says looking back, she would have done First Aid Step 2 CK + Uworld, instead of MTB 2. I currently have MTB 2/MTB 3, first aid step 2 ck, and a uworld subscription. Do you guys have any experience/thoughts on First Aid Step 2 ck or regarding any changes in the exam recently? Thanks!

    MTB-2 is >> better than FA-2CK. I regret reading FA-2CK.

    My time would have been better spent backpacking for three weeks through Greece eating stuffed grape leaves.

    I am using MTB 2 & 3 right now and I personally dislike it, but have heard the consensus that FA-2CK is not enough. I don't like reading a full page of info for a few important bullet points.

    I wish there was a book more like FA that was just bullet points, images, and tables.

    Yeah it didn't seem like FA Step 2 helped me out that much when I took the actual exam. Never had MTB though so not sure how much better it is.
