    Hi all,

    I am a foreign medical graduate and have to do step 2 of the USMLE, what material should I buy to ace step 2. Any ideas would be appreciated!

    Thanks a lot.

    For step 2 ck:
    Books -

    1> Kaplan books are all that is required if time is less

    For all readers who want to add a zing to the prep here are a few books -

    2> Master the Boards for step 2ck by Conrad Fischer (read this twice)

    3> First Aid for step 2ck(read once)

    4>NMS Surgery casebook(read once full and for trauma section once more)

    5> NMS Surgery –

    6> NMS Obstetrics –

    7> Blueprint Pediatrics – An excellent but time consuming review

    8> Blueprint Neurology –

    9> NMS Medicine Casebook –

    10> NMS Medicine – Some chapters like rheumat, endocrinology, cardiology and gastroenterology are worth one read with Kaplan notes.

    There are just TOO MANY books there. If I were you I'd begin a customized plan that is tailored to my strengths and weaknesses. How did you do in third year of med school? Did you have to take shelves? If you did okay, first aid and selective re-reading of topics that are confusing or difficult for you maybe all that is needed. That and questions.
    Step 1: > 265
    Step 2CK: > 265
    Step 3: > 245 (with 1 week of preparation)

    What are three books that are recommended for step 2 CK. Not looking for a review program at this time because I dont plan to take the test until next year but I want to get a head start while I am in clinical rotations.
