This is a MILLION dollar question, and was aksed BILLIONS of time.
So, let me summerize what I have heard so far from forum GURUs
(Note: I have not taken my test yet, so this is not my opinion).

The recommendations are: according to priority..

a. Kaplan CK books
b. UW MCQ and CCS
c. First aid/Crush
d. Kaplan step 3 video
e. Kaplan Q bank and or Kaplan Q book
f. Premier review notes (with or without audio)
g. Swanson (at least sports medicine, geriatrics etc, if possible, cover to cover, no harm in reading more)
h. MKSAP14 questions only
i. Step BOOSTER (ask sir steve for his personal opinion)
j. Harrison online assessment Qs

Now, from where to start:
Start with CK notes and UW MCQs

Minimum requirement:
at least a to e.

For CCS:
UW 88 cases and FA CCS
Shaher CD to practice CCS
some people recommend USMLE step 123 CCS .....

how long it take to prepare:
for 1 week to 12 months...depending on your ambition, capacity etc.

I hope you can start with these basic info...more info will coome gradually...
