I would recommend this:

Kaplan Lecture Notes for all subjects except Pathology. If you have the time and sources for audio/video lectures accompanying them, go for it.

Goljan Audio Lectures Plus Rapid Review of Pathology book. I have posted a link for this, you can check it on the forum if you want to download the lectures.

FA 2010 edition for the up to date information, mnemonics and the book for final days before the exam.

I have posted the links, just look above your post.

No Rapid Review is different from BRS.

Default Wikitestprep

Someone told me wikitestprep is good too if you want to do a bunch of free extra questions. So - Kaplan Qbank / UW / wikitestprep / consult if you have time and of course your NBMEs
