Short Term Memory to Long Term Memory

I have been asked about how to prepare for the USMLE Step 2 CK exam. Though we only train students to pass their Step 2 CS exam in first attempt in our Vital Checklist Workshop but I wanted to provide a list of books, websites and videos, which students can use for their preparation for this exam. During the entire process of USMLE exams it is so difficult to get the proper guidance and therefore I decided to write a brief synopsis of how to prepare and where to start. USMLE Step 2 CK exam preparation should ideally start when you are preparing for your Internal Medicine MBBS exams. After complete understanding of the concepts of USMLE Step 2 CK, you will not only be able to ace this exam but also have higher ranking in post graduation (PG) exams.
