Warning! BRS Vs Kaplan

hi fellas,
I know the topic might sound repetitive but i am asking about specific thing here,
I am studying for step1 from the following:

Microbiology made ridiculously simple
Pathology Goljan rapid review
High Yield Neuroanatomy

as they have bulk in the exam,

about the remaining subjects can I substitute the Kaplan lecture notes with BRS series or this will be risky? thanks in advance ;D

I heard that BRS in physiology is already better

I'd do Goljan if you *had* to substitute for pathology instead of BRS - but why would you? Kaplan is comprehensive and sufficient and easy to read... Pair Kaplan with FA and you're good...
