Greece Beginner: What and How?

Hello everyone. I am a greek 2nd year medical student and I have taken the decision to give the USMLE exams starting woth Step 1 in the end of my 3rd year or in the middle of my 4th one. I have some questions regarding the exams, any input would be valuable.
What exactly do I gain with a good grade in the USMLEs. Does a good score guarantee entrance in any residency, any hospital I want? Are there any other factors involved?
Secondly, I have been really stumbled about the required books. I have gathered plenty of information but I don' t want to buy anything before beginning. Are there any specific books that the exams are based on?

Any info would be welcome. Thank you in advance.
