Republic of Georgia My Prep Plan For Step 1/ What Do You Think?

Fist of all I would like to thank you all for your best quotes and answers. When the interesting Questions are made you always have an precise answer.
So I decided to ask general opinion about my future plans with step I preparation. If it doesn't matter.
I'm III year student in Tbilisi, Georgia.
Actually I really learned hard all the basic subjects from physio to pathology but these all from Georgian books (they aren't quite adequate for boards). This year I heard about USMLE and decided to pass Step 1 during my student years.

These are books, I'll do before the exam:

High Yield Neuroanatomy
BRS Physiology
Lippincott’s Review -Biochemistry
High Yield Histology
High Yield Embryology
Road Map Genetics
Lippincott's pharmacology
Goljan RR pathology
Microbiology MRS

before the exam FA and UWorld.

I have enough time to deal with this books. So I'd like to ask is this material enough for step 1? desired score is above 95

Thanks for your attention.

These are good books you chose. Go ahead and read them. The advantage is you want to finish step 1 while you are a student. This will make your journey much easier.

Hi beka-CTS
I'm an IMG (graduated in 2012) and I'll start preparing for step 1 very soon . I was going to post a thread asking about my study plan which strangely is exactly the same as yours . I'll planning to use the same review books you mentioned + kaplan videos to help me clarify the subjects and of course FA & UWorld.
After a long search i decided to use the same review books you're using, but still I'm not sure about 3 subjects so I have 3 questions:
1. I'm confused about Biochemistry because Lippincott's seems to contain many details that other books don't, so I would like to ask you all is Lippincott's too much for step 1???
2. is kaplan genetics enough? because Road Map Genetics seems looong
3. I heard that HY histology contains less histology material and more patho,physio,and pharma.. is that ture?

Sorry for elongation.. :sorry:
I would really appreciate your help
