Why don't you try this out?
Poll: Best USMLE Step 2 CK Review Books
I haven't given Step 2 yet but the results on this poll seem helpful.

If you are wondering how much time you need, check this out (I'm assuming you are IMG, sorry if you are not)
Poll: Time needed for IMGs to prepare for Step 2 CK

From what I've heard repeatedly on this forum, KLN, MTB and UWorld is what most people go with.
Good luck with whatever you decide!

be care full

Do complete research
Find some one Who aced CK by doing it first

i will never suggest anyone Ck first ,
CK is easier after Step-1, more chances to score higher in Ck in less time
other wise its Griding

HOPE IT HELPS
