Like the subject: for all you upcoming 4th years, when do you plan to take Step 2 and what do you think is a good date to begin studying. I wanted to go ahead and get it over with while all the material learned on the rotations is fresh, but don't know if I want to risk not doing as well as my Step 1 scores and having them show up just in time for interviews. Also, I've looked at failure rates for Step 2 and they are comparable to Step1. Why is it that not as much attention is given to Step2 prep? Is it alot easier and students just take it for granted and end up failing? All advice appreciated.
