Yes, since 5/15/2010, Step 1 has been changed to include more clinical scenarios....I think good Q bank like UW will help you much

You don't need to study in Kaplan Step 2 books because Kaplan Step 1 books already includes all the "clinical" content that you need for USMLE Step 1.
Yes, the clinical content is more in Step 1 now as they reduced the number of questions from 48 to 46 per block to compensate for the longer clinical scenarios.
