Don't waste your time reading these references, all what you need is review books (Best USMLE Step 2 CK Review Books), most people use Kaplan.

The issue of reading textbooks for the USMLE has been discussed here
Should we read full textbooks or just review books?

dude!! stick to the standards, I know sometimes....we are so desperate to score high that we are willing to do almost anything...but...it's best to just select good review books and practice lots and lots of mcqs for CK..don't waste ur time with Harrison and Bailey,..leave them for ur residency ....hopefully :-)

dude, there are lots of differences between british and american medicine. Bailey and davidson's will give you brit information and you will mess up the exam with this data. Who knows, that may even fail you in the exam. Follow what everyone does follow and thats kaplan. Don't risk something safe.
