According to my seniors advice Brainstem cross sections, cranial nerve nuclei & their lesions are quite high yield & frequently tested topics.

It is very high yield. Its a tough subject but just keep thinking while studying "this is what seperates a pass from a fail".

By far the best book you will use for neuroscience, including the photos they use in the exam is

James S. White

This neuroscience book is short and sweet and has EVERYTHING you need to be above average in the USMLE step 1.
