Default Pathoma before Physio possible?

SHORT VERSION: Will I be able to follow Pathoma without doing Kaplan Physio again, I did physio 3 yrs ago. I have 2 months till kaplan and really wanted to do Pathoma before then and Physio is 35 hours of lecture and will take a lot of time away from courses that I have never reviewed before. I wanted to try to have a slight idea of every topic before kaplan.


LONG VERSION:
Hi guys, I have two months before Kaplan Live Prep and have finally began to recover from severe severe depression and I want to start prepping on my own so I'm not lost at Kaplan.

Path is a huge part of the exam and the only thing I feel won't bore me to death right now is the excitement of trying out Pathoma and seeing what's so great about it.

I reviewed physio 3 years ago from Kaplan so my concepts probably aren't too great, do you think it will leave me lost when doing Pathoma? I'm going to re-do everything after Kaplan Live prep, but right now I was just hoping to do Path, Pharm, Immuno, Neuro in the next 2 months since those are the topics I never touched yet. I reviewed the other topics a couple years ago so I'm hoping because of that I won't be too lost at kaplan for those topics.

If I manage to cover the previously mentioned topics it would allow me to have a basic idea of every topic before heading into Kaplan.

actually i haven't yet start pathology , but i think it is impossible without physiology . most people don't take physiology as important subject , but I think that it is the base of all medicine and is the most important to understand other subjects , such as patho or pharma . so i would like to suggest you do physio first . it is very hard , you must to understand well all that concepts . to memorize it you should re-read it several times . if you have read physio 3 years ago , it will be easier for you now . so i recommend to you read book , not videos , because for repeating , books take less time . you can read BRS , it is 330 pages , and if you will not make tests in this book , the whole reading will be 260 pages . good lucks
