Listening What do you think about my study plan??

Hello
I will start my study tomorrow with Kaplan anatomy and intending to follow this plan:
  1. Kaplan LN
  2. FA 2013 (simultaneously with Kaplan LN)
  3. Pathoma (because many people recommend studying it instead of Kaplan)
  4. Kaplan Qbook (simultaneously with Kaplan LN)
  5. UW Qbank (since I won't take my step 1 until 2015 I will complete the above then buy a 3 month subscription in UW and spend the last 3 months just before the exam doing them and reviewing FA only)
So what do you think about my plan (my friend will join me and will stick to the same plan )??
Is their any Kaplan book should be substituted by another review book, or Kaplan is enough??
Any other book, resource, Qbank, test... etc, should be added to this plan??
Thanks in advance

I think you should go through Goljans rapid review pathology simultaneously with pathoma.It will help you to tackle the toughest questions on usmle world as well as exam alike.
Rest is all right

I have always heard that Goljan is the best but I wanted a thinner book with videos to learn quickly and efficiently so is it fine to stick to Pathoma and read the 36-pages Goljan HY notes???
