I guess you are just starting so I will lay down some basic guidelines for you to follow, like Sf2008 said you need to follow those books let add some detail I guess

1>Read as many exam experiences shared over this forum and have a basic idea of what people use and what people dont use to study.
Eg: People dont use Kaplan Pathology from 2010

2>Read methods shared by people, a great place to start will be:
Code:
http://www.usmle-forums.com/usmle-step-1-recommended-threads/2271-zumzum-method-usmle-step-1-preparation-schedule-plan.html
Then design your own study schedule and plan and decide what to use!

An old post by StepTaker, give it a read for basic idea:
Code:
http://www.usmle-forums.com/usmle-step-1-recommended-threads/786-usmle-step-1-preparation-books-plan.html

What I suggest is there are two methods:

1>Kaplan videos + lecture notes(all except patho) + pathoma ---> Goljan Audio lectures + transcript ---> First aid + UWorld ---> Revision from First Aid ---> Exam

2>If you are looking into individual subjects books that will be of high yield then following is the list(According to my experience and posts of exam takers from this forum) put all the info into your First Aid and Do UWorld Revise and give the exam

Gross Anatomy: High Yield Series
Neuroanatomy : High Yield Series
Physiology : BRS Physiology
Biochemistry : Lippincotts Biochemistry
Pharmacology : Katzung
Pathology : Goljan RR
Microbiology : Clinical Microbiology made Ridiculously Simple by Gladwin


and always keep in touch with this forum and give a through meticulous read to all the threads of the Recommended Threads Forum:
