It depends.
Are you IMG or AMG. Are you in a clinical residency in the USA?
Are you in a surgical residency in the USA?
You are not in a residency at all and you are coming from overseas to take the test.
How long since you took Step 2, all levels?
If you are an AMG in a clinical residency only a month or two.
If you are an AMG in a surgical residency, two to three months.
If you are an IMG in a clinical residency, add one month.
If you are an IMG in a surgical residency, add two months.
If you are an IMG in no residency, 6 months minimum.
If your are an IMG who took the Step 2 more than six month ago, 8 months minimum.
This is if you are serious and responsible at the time to study.
If you are a kamikazee, none of this apply to you.
Good luck!!!
Regarding material to study: Kaplan+UW+Archer for CCS
