Do Goljian audio and Pathoma. That combination is the best!

You can also do Goljian Rapid Review. It's an excellent book but hard to retain.

Good luck!

Both are great.Pathoma is precise and short whereas goljan is massive.But goljan has the advantage of integrating all of medicine and help you with other steps as well.

I think Goljan prepared me for step 1, 2 and 3.
Audio lectures.

Clearly, Goljan IMO
