Congrats on your performance in the step1 exam.
I am sure you must be relieved and happy that you are done and over with the exam

I am just about finishing giving my 2nd year exam. i plan to give the exam somewhere mid next year, so i have around 6-8 months of preparation time left with me.
I am an IMG student and the material that i have currently on me is the First Aid.
Do i need to procure the lecture notes? or if i do the matter well from the standard books that are prescribed by my college for their exams will be sufficient enough?
Also, i would like to know what exactly is the "Kaplan Medical USMLE Step 1 Qbook" what exactly does it contain? how useful and important is it to have it?

Lastly, would you suggest any other material needed for my preparations?

Sorry for the long list of the questions i asked you.

Thanks a million in advance
