Question CASE FILES are they good? Need the best score in Step 2

Hi, I have this case files books for surgery, Ob-gyn and pediatrics. Is it worth including them in my study schedule?
I need the best possible score in step 2 cause my step 1 score was awful (75/189).
If you have heard anything about this books it would be a lot of help. I donīt want to waste time if they are not good or helpful.

Agree with above post
but Case files OB and Pediatrics are great
Case files takes long to go through so for review purposes they are not useful
Pretest if ur approaching crunch time
