3: Crush Step 2:
The author who wrote USMLE Step 2 Secrets is the author of this book too. The content of the two books is mostly the same. Crush Step 2 is written in prose and paragraphs rather than in clinical scenarios and question format. So you have to decide which book to follow.

This Book does not provide complete review, and that is the reason some students like it and some do not. This book mainly contains the high yield points. Students who are looking for a more complete review of the information should probably not purchase this book.

For step 2 ck exam you will need thousands of questions. For this purpose you will need both Kaplan’s online QBank as well as USMLE World’s online QBank. However, you are not always at a computer and you will find that question books are a nice rest from the screen. Kaplan’s Step 2 Qbook one of the best in the market.

Recently, Kaplan has allowed students to purchase their complete Lecture Notes for board exams, including these Step 2 notes, without actually taking their in-person classes. These Notes are one of best source for USMLE Step 2 CK.
9: Step-Up to USMLE Step 2:
It may seem counter-intuitive, but I prefer Step-Up to Medicine (#5) as a Step 2 study resource to the book that Step-Up wrote specifically for Step 2. I used the second edition of Step-Up to USMLE Step 2 and it was good, but from what I am hearing the third edition has a poor layout and not well updated.
