  Hello guys! I'm an IMG.
3 years ago I took step 1 and CS in a row, and I failed both. It was very shocking for me, on their notes my English wasn't good. I was devastating, so I decided to take a break and keep studying English in order to improve it. That break costed me 3 years. No regrets. Now, I'm feeling good and secure. I'm ready to get on track, but I do know that things change, and I'm a bit loss, I do not know where to start.
1.What should I do with ECFMG?. After that time, Do I need to send my documents again? Do I need to do an upgrade?.
2.Which courses/materials are the best to study for Step 1?.
3.All your advice will be very helpful to return to this path.
