Default is goljan audio worth it?

HI guys , to study for path , which I was taught very badly, I am taking time to do goljan audio and 125 pages summary notes of audio.

Is it worth it. I spent so much time,adn only on page 50 now! I am wondering did I do right by starting with goljan audio and on the side consult his book.

I did same by starting with Goljan audios but its a big time mistake. I thank God I realised it fast so I shifted gears. U got to do Kaplan books and vedios before u hit Goljan audios.
Goljan audios is only good to start with if ur basis are solid since he integrates all the subjects and u need ur basis in that else it will sound like if he mentions kreb's cycle u want to go check it up or he says vitamin c is needed as cofactors in syntheses of cathecolamine and hey u wanna check that up. I think it's a bad idea. Do Goljan audios after learning ur basis and that man will seal the gaps for u.

Keep n mind that even though my path teacher was weak, here is what I do,
1. do goljan audio lectures, plus supplement with
2. medbullets.com,
3. goljan book.

My plan is because we had weak path, start off with audio lectures for structure, then eventuall move into the boook, which is 2013 2014.

I hope investing into goljan audio wont do me badly.
