So Secrets for Usmle step 2 is awesome but strictly a supplement so along with USMLEWORLD for questions I need you people out there to tell me which main resource to buy because everytime I go to the bookstore I end up with step up to step 2, crush, and a handful of others and I cant make up my mind.

before you suggest I do a search in this forum...I already did and nothing useful came up.

just please make up my mind for me.

thanks!

p.s. this is for comlex step 2 but it shouldnt matter whether you loved it for usmle 2 or comlex 2, either way i appreciate the advice!

already studying huh?
you dont waste anytime

i love secrets but it's not a main resource
boards and wards sucks in my opinion
havent tried usmleworld YET
and i've heard good things bout step up

what I really have to get is comlexedge.com...I hear that's the ultimate resource

Yeah I also heard that resource is amazing! I heard that it helped Western DO2008 get the highest passing rate in Step 1 (94%) since a long time ;)

I lived and died by First Aid for Step 1, but I have to say when I was studying for Step 2, I found Step Up to be far superior. I had and used both that and First Aid, but I really think Step Up could be used for a main resource. I also had Crush, I read through it once very early on in my studying but I don't think I would give that one my thumbs up. I didn't ever go back to it after that preliminary read. Hope that helps. :)
