If u have time its better to do goljan,I did pathoma first,I felt its nothing but just an expanded version of FA.

So doing Goljan now,its like double the work for me..

Default pathoma

at the end of the day the stuff in pathoma is what you will remember from goljan no matter how much you read goljan,which reading goljan more than 2 times is very difficult unless you have a lot of time...but you can do pathoma evry week..trust me its possible to finish pathoma within a week after you have read it thoroughly once...people are biased towards goljan.....

I did my pathology from Pathoma, and only reviewed the blue side notes in Goljan (the slides too). Honestly it didn't take me that much time. I first got my basic concepts mastered from Pathoma and then I quickly reviewed the blue side notes with the slides from Goljan in the corresponding chapters. I have been getting around 95% in UW!
