    Resources for step 1:

    First aid (can be purchased from amazon.com), usmle world question bank, rapid review pathology, pathoma from pathoma.com. These resources are a must.

    Supplemental material: BRS physiology, another question bank such as usmlerx from usmlerx.com or Kaplan question bank.

    When you buy new FA you will see the section of top-rated review resources at the very end.
    I used it as guidance.

    Awesome. Is it worth going through Kaplan Lecture Notes? What is a good video lecture series to watch?

    Is the three month supply of Pathoma sufficient?

    Sure. Because first of all you need to watch all the lectures and make sure to annotate appropriate information into the book. This way you won't have to re watch any of the videos. Even if you do, you will have plenty of time to do so.

    Got my copy of FA today along with BRS physiology:). i also saw the top rated review resources at the back of my FA and it seems to help me a lot in getting my books for step1.
