Yes kaplan is good.

Make sure you know your CT scans and MRI of the head.

and Brachial Plexus of the upper limb.

Those will be tested.

Arrow Do the HY series

If you are not satisfied with Kaplan then you can see here
Best Anatomy Book for USMLE Step 1
That poll stresses the fact that High Yield Gross Anatomy is a great book.

Also don't forget Neuroanatomy and see here Best Neuroanatomy Book for USMLE Step 1

well for the most part it is sufficient but i would suggest you read up on high yield neuroanatomy as well!!! its a good book, short and concise!! after you are done with kaplan, just give a day or two to high yield!! it wont take long and will be a good source of review!!
