For me, I used Kaplan Pharm + video + First Aid. 95% of the questions I faced while doing USMLE Rx, Kaplan Qbook, and UWorld can be answered using these books.

Default Best way to prepare for Pharmacology USMLE Step 1

Lionel Raymond vidoe lectures are the best lectures of Kaplan step1 course and you have to do it.
The pharmacology book of Kaplan is wonderful, specially the first two or three sections, you have to read them very carefully and understand the concept very well.
As lemontea said, if you do these books and lectures you'll answer most of the questions in your USMLE exam.
Pay attention to side effects and mechanism of actions, they all come in the exam.

Good luck

Katzung is the book of choice for medical students, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and any other health care student who needs a thorough review of pharmacology.

What do you mean by other forums? If you mean SDN then don't listen to them because that forum is basically for medical students and american grads. FA is not enough for pharma. Listen to lemontea above. This guy got his score and it's 251 see his post here
