Help need advise with Step 1 review

Hi everyone! I'm just about to start with the step 1 review. I'm planning to study for the next 5 months. I would love to hear how IMGs should prepare for the exam. I graduated 2012, April. Here are my plans for the review. Kaplan 2012 lec notes and 2010 video, pathoma, Goljan audio, Uworld, and FA 2012. will these be sufficient? I would really appreciate to hear any words of advise from those who took the exam recently. Thank you

For each topic in pathology i watched pathoma and then listened to goljan, both with concerned notes and slides too for goljan, if you watch pathoma first you can understand goljan even the first time. I suggest you to study both as it wont take much time

The reason why I decided to do pathoma is because I want to understand the basic patho. And I think pathoma made it simple and concise. Goljan is the standard. But I don't personally think I can retain everything I read from 600+pages. I want to keep my study plan as simple as possible. What I'm planning to do is study pathoma notes and watch video lectures then while I relax or exercise I will listen to Goljan every day until my exam day. And also write high yield side notes on my FA.
