USMLE Books Mentioned in Kaplan but not mentioned in FA!

Hey, Guys,

I have one question about the first aid and Kaplan lecture notes. Something from the Kaplan is not included in the first aid. Do i need to go through or just ignore them.

Thanks!

Good luck to everybody!

Thanks all for information. It is better to go through each single details in Kaplan lecture notes to understand FA better.

Good luck again!

i dont have to much experience since im starting my prep, but i have to say FA is a very complete material, the things i add, may be not high yield, thats why they are not there, but helps me associate the things that are there, and who knows might give me a higher score, but bottom line is know your FA
