I have an opportunity to purchase Kaplan books for Step 1, which I'll be taking next year. I wanted to get recommendations from wise and experienced medical students! Do you think the Kaplan Home Study Book is better or the Kaplan Live Course Book set? Or do you think it's better to pick and choose books recommended in First Aid and skip Kaplan's material altogether? I definitely plan to subscribe to Q-Bank this time next year, but I need to decide on the Kaplan books now. I'd appreciate any feedback on the quality of the Kaplan materials and if you think they're worth it (especially at a reduced cost). I was also thinking that having the book(s) during my second year, I could do some review or note-writing in the books as time permits. Good Luck to all the M2s currently studying for Step 1! All of your hard work will pay off! Thanks in advance.
