Listening Tackling the Step1!!!

Hello everyone

Question from a med student close to final lap of basic science. I am trying to get as much advice from those who have taken USMLE step 1 on how to attack this exam. Here is a list of options i am currently looking into when my prep starts in December.

Study plan: ("Pass program [4 weeks]", First Aid, Kaplan lecture notes, USMLE World, Kaplan q bank, Pathoma, DIT).

What review books do you suggest, ex BRS...HY...etc

My problem is i don't know what to start with, do i take the review pass program first and then do the others. Or go into the review program with at least 2 months of hardcore studying? In what order is it ideal to attack a study plan like this?
Or assuming i decide not to go for "Pass program", what is ideal to start with? and is a 4 months prep enough for this approach?

<I am open to any suggestions>
