Default Best thing to do starting M1 for Step 1? (Not to be that guy...)

I know that this has been done to death, and I don't want to be that guy, but I really want to kill the step.

I'm currently an M1 in an organ-based curriculum (biochem/path/pharm/immuno/micro as foundations first, then organ systems) and I want to do as much step prep work as I can during the first 2 years since we have a relatively short dedicated step prep time (3 weeks).

So far I'm on firecracker and FA, but do you think I could supplement my coursework with something else like a qbook/bank (that's not UW/USMLERx/Kaplan) to do alongside class?

Obviously doing well in M1 and esp M2 is the best thing to do for step, but what are things I could do now that yields high dividends for when it comes to my actual, dedicated prep time?

Thanks so much in advance!
