Post Basic Science vs Organ Systems - which is the most hi yield?

So my first week of work/school/prep is over And I start questioning if my priority is right?

Step 1 is about the basic science, no doubt about that, but from those whom have taken it or know more than I do... which is the most high yield? The basic sciences or the organ systems?

Also where should one really start focusing, which is better off putting for "more memorizing" in the end?

One of my weaker spots is Micro, so I have started with micro.

The subject I am considering putting more at the end for more memorizing is
1: Embryo
2: Behavioral

And perhaps Biochem, though I am not sure.

I will ofc do read through on them, but were thinking focusing more about patho+micro+physio+pharma as they go very well into the organ systems as well.

What do you think? I would be very happy to get any input as after one week I am so not sure if I am thinking correctly in my time-management and all

It is really hard to figure out which subject is the "most high yield" which is a definitly must know.

learning embryo will help your anatomy, so put embryo before anatomy
biochem also comes up quite a bit in path, so don't leave biochem until the end
but by all means, do leave behavioural and biostats until the end.

thats just my opinion though.
