Angry Reading Goljan.

hey guys... i am really finding this book a bit annoying and i dont wanna read it.
Is it okay if i just read and master pathoma?
And if goljan is really really imporatant to do before taking the exam,Can u tell me the list of high yield chapters for which i should refer to Goljan as well.


M quite confused coz all my seniors who i asked for advice on study materials suggested goljan..but i have no idea how they managed to study/understand/remember this huge bulk of information.
pls share in your experiences as well.

I'm an IMG , never studied much in med school and had weak basics . I started my prep after i graduated . I studied only pathoma with the videos, added extra information from first aid + uworld and it was more than enough for me . Got a score just shy of 250 . I couldn't bear to even touch goljan . It was way too detailed . Pathoma gives you all the information in a simple way and the videos are really good . Goljan was the book to read for patho maybe 6-7 yrs back . I don't see many people reading goljan now .
