USMLE Books Reading BRS physio 3 times enough?

To all the experienced step 1 test takers.

Is it good enough to read BRS physio 3 times for step 1, and understanding the basics only? I don't know extreme details and a few basic stuff here and there but nothing in physio seems new to me. I was hoping I could tweak the rest of my physio by doing uworld questions or first aid.

Or do you think I should pretty much memorize BRS physio cold? Many people, including on the poll (Best Physiology Book For USMLE Step 1), said that BRS physio is the best. Is physio (the one in BRS) covered on a huge part of the exam? Or does it help in understanding a lot of the other topics?

I wanted to know how much more extra time I should spend on brs physio which is why i asked. Thanks

Actually I did not understand you.

In one way I thought you are looking for doing less than BRS and in another way I thought you wanted to do less than BRS!

The last thing you said; it helps understand much more the rest of the things.

You can't know the abnormal without knowing the normal first.

From what i've heard, it isn't highly tested as a subject on its own (that would make USMLE too easy) but it's mingled in with any other possible subject there is.

Love Physio.....It's an amazing journey.

With that said, yes UW and BRS should be enough.
