I agree on those two books - I do have a few more suggests for both books and methods.

Method - in the above two books do 50 block questions every day. The Kaplan is by subject with two tests per subject area - the Lange is 50 questions at random. This gets you use to doing questions - After you do the questions review the answers. Make a hit list of things you missed in the subject area and research them in your courses. Also the Made Ridiculus simple series has a Step one with 1000 questions on CD as does the Goljan Path book. Do questions in these books also. The BRS books also have questions. Do these as you go along with your courses.
I read where a student did this at school and the USMLE was less difficult to prepare for. Many people say the best test prep is to get it the first time...
