Default Step 2 ck Biostats preparation?!

Hi.
Can anyone please guide me how to improve biostatistics for Step 2 ck and which resource material to use?
I have gone through the kaplan step 2 lecture notes for Epidemiology and Biostats and also gone through uworld of this topic. but i would benefit from some additional source to make up for this weakness.

P.S: I havent done step 1.

I have heard that First Aid is good for this..So shall i read first aid step 1 for psychiatry( because i heard its good) and for biostats?
and is it first aid of step 1, right? or is it step 2 first aid?
Kindly confirm.

sorry i didn't notice ur q regarding fa.

Do FA of step 1 for psychi & biostat.

for biostat annotate FA from UW explanations (mainly) & kaplan (if u feel u still deficint)--> so u make FA ur only source & keep reviewing it.

definitely Fa of step 1 + UW would be the best source.
