hey doc, i m gonna start my preps real soon, i m having same problem in selecting books, bcz i faced it in step 1 kaplan's are not enough for step1 to score >240 . .
what i learned from seniors you should focus on Kaplan + MTB both for step 2 and step 3 , , ,they say MTB step 3 really helps in step 2 ck . .hope it will help in selecting books . .

I would definately use step up to medicine for Medicine. It's a great book but I would start early.

Yes, definately OBGYN has to be done from MTB 3, I have MTB 2 CK and MTB 3 and so far I'm doing OBGYN from kaplan notes and videos wich I also check with MTB. MTB 3 has more information and is easier to understand than the MTB CK wich lacks a lot of info, at least for OBGYN.
I can't give input in other subjects because I haven't done them, once I start with another subject I will also compare both MTB CK and MTB 3 and will give you guys some more input.
