USMLE Books FA Pathology versus Goljan?

Hey guys, those who have experience, everybody knows that Goljan is gold standard, but whats the position between Goljan and FA.

Should people study Goljan, and never look at FA's pathology.. lets discuss this.

Idea! Start with FA

Start with FA, then go do some questions, if you see yourself OK then no need to kill yourself with the 600 pages of Goljan!

Warning!

I guess, one shall do both. After doing Goljan, one shall read FA, as it makes sure the ultra high yield stuff one needs to know...

Goljan pathology better understanding than FA - but Goljan in a live lecture classroom better than all of the above put together.

August 15th, 2011 is the next class in Dallas, TX - the package is amazing as well - 7-week course til Sept 30th with Falcon Physician Reviews

http://www.falconreviews.com/v3/live....html#upcoming

Rapid Review Pathology by Goljan given as well as hotel stay, daily food services (breakfast/lunch) included, high speed internet, hotel shuttle services - plus daily clinical vignettes, colored textbooks accompanying the class lectures, www.usmleworld.com 3 month subscription, diagnostic exams included - AND daily tutoring not with the Teacher's Assistant but with the professors themselves after each class daily!

I overheard that they are also giving away their exclusive First Aid Audio/Visual On Demand lectures ($699 value) for FREE to anyone taking the August class - and for a cheaper price than Kaplan.

That's what's up
