Default confusion about some books for CK

Hi. I'm planning on giving CK exam in sep/oct. I haven't given step 1 yet. and need some help with choosing the right books. So far I've started with Kaplan lecture notes and I've got the following questions.

Q1. I've seen reviews about the kaplan ethics book not being enough for step 2 Ck if you haven't done step 1. So which book should I use for that? Is kaplan enough or should I use medical ethics by conrad fischer (master the boards) or BRS or any other recommendation?

Q2. First aid 2 vs master the boards? which one is better? considering I haven't given step 1 exam.

Q3. If master the boards is better than first aid, do I have to do all four books? internal medicine, paediatrics, medical ethics and step 2 ck target review?

Q4. Reviews about kaplan Qbook?

Those Questions are dilemmas of CK prep.

Both FA and MTB work i'm sure. no one can say this is better or not.

Stick to one of them, do everything, get UW !

UW is the best studying material so far in ma prep.

and my exam is in 2 wks.

Which book did you use for neurology? kaplan internal medicine notes or blueprints. Which one do you think would be sufficient for someone who hasn't given step 1 exam?

And which book did you use for medical ethics/public health?

Thanks and Good luck for you exam.
