hey guys, i know a lot of these topics must repeat themselves but the search function on these boards arent the friendliest to use. Well a lot of people propose First Aid and some say its crap. Others recommend kaplan notes(08-09.. is there a newer edition?) and others mention other books like Crush,blueprints, and secrets.

I really dont know what to buy and it seems like there are too many options available in the market.

I'm definitely subscribing to USMLE world Qbank for questions but i'm wondering what the best review books for study are?

Thanks

I myself have not taken the Step 2 CK as of yet. However, I will share my reading list as given to me by my upper-classmates who did quite well:
General
First Aid- For PEDS only
USMLE Step 2 Secrets- this is basically a condensed from of Crush Step 2
Crush Step 2- you may prefer the outline of this as compared to Secrets
Surgery
Surgical Recall
Kaplan Notes
Internal Medicine
Kaplan Notes
Step Up to Medicine
Ob/Gyn
HY Ob/Gyn
Kaplan Notes
Psychiatry
Blueprints
Pediatrics
As stated, First Aid is good for this
Kaplan Notes

I have also been told the Kaplan videos for Internal Medicine and Surgery are beneficial. Hope that helps.

somebody told me in this forum to try master the boards STEP 3. Yes, you got it right, STEP 3. I read it already, and IT'S WORTH READING!!! Double thumbs up. I'll be taking my step 2 on Nov 19, and this book gave me confidence.
