Hi, I'm from India,med student have just completed my 4.5 yrs of medical graduation and still have one yr of compulsory internship left.. my brother's doing his residency in nyc, so i was gonna go meet him next month and he advised me to give step 2 cs as i'm going to the states anyways. i have abt 3-4 weeks to prepare for the exam.

will that be sufficient? considering i havent given any of the steps.. is it really recommended to have given step 1 first and then go for step 2 cs?

and also i still havent started my 1 yr of compulsory internship, my brother's confident that i should give it so i 'm going ahead with it anyways... what do u guys suggest ??

i;m fresh from medicine and surgery so he recommends me to take the exam now.... havent started preparing yet...

first aid and kaplan complex cases is what i'll go through.. any other recommendations?
