Before Starting the OSCP....

I've just purchased the OSCP course with 90 days worth of labs which i'm due to start at the end of this week. I was wondering if i should do any additional preparation in terms of reading /practicals before starting? Or am i right in thinking that this is all covered pretty well in the course material?
I have already passed the PenTest+ which i completed at the end of last year so i'm not totally new to the area. I would hate to start it and then discover i should have left a bit more of a gap before doing so. But also at the same time i don't want to go into overkill preparation mode if its not really necessary.
I've found the following recommended books
- Kali Linux Revealed
- Penetration Testing: A Hands-on Introduction to Hacking
- Web Application Hackers Handbook
- Rtfm: Red Team Field Manual
- Hacking: The Art of Exploitation 2nd Edition
Thanks in advance

If your doing some of ippsec's tutorials on the easier HTB boxes then you should have a really good base. Let me know if you have any other questions!
