Drug Getting ready for Step 1 but what Pharma prep book?

Hi, every one!

I am an IMG & am new to this great forum which I find to be very useful, thanks to the equally great people here giving all these informative posts.

I graduated about nine months earlier & planning to take the USMLE step one exam the sooner date possible.

Started to collect resources for my study & got Kaplan notes & vids, but as I went through many threads regarding the study materials it seemed to me that people who follow "the Kaplan method" strongly suggested that it should be supplemented by books from other series like BRS, high yield & others.
Then I decided to follow their advice but got really confused about with which book to supplement pharmacology Kaplan notes?

I would appreciate any help from you guys :sorry:
& thanks in advance

You don't need to supplement Kaplan with any other pharma book, the Kaplan book is great and is more than enough.

However, if you insist, go and check this poll
