Planning Please evaluate my study plan

I'm an IMG (US Citizen at Caribbean med school) about to start my Step1 study. Basic science subjects were taught well except Neuro, Pharm, and Path. Neuro was taught just ok, but Pharm and Path were atrocious. Accordingly, I plan to devote 1 month of intense study for each of those subjects by: reading a Neuro textbook (Neuroanatomy through cases by Hal Blumenfeld), Pharm textbook (Katzung & Trevor's Pharmacology Examination & Board Review), and Pathoma.

Then, do Kaplan videos + Uworld questions for 3 months and write the exam. Maybe do DIT2012 during the last month too.

6 months of total prep. Is this a reasonable plan? Is it necessary for me to actually read the Neuro and Pharm textbooks if I feel my foundation is flimsy or would Kaplan videos be enough for those subjects? Thanks for any advice.
