Ellis is an excellent surgery textbook for medical students. Depends on how much time you want to dedicate to surgery though; bailey & love is definitely the gold standard if you have the time for it

Bailey and Love
SRB by Jaypee
Washington manual is a must. Loved it. use it in wards.
Ellis is written for dummies.

SRB and Washington Manual are my personal favorites. For step 2 CK, surgery is the least tested subject. Kaplan covers it pretty good.

Good Luck
