i would not advise to go for goljan RR unless u have 2-3 months time, it will take too much time, use it as a reference instead.
Do the goljan audio or Goljan High yield pages instead. IF u have more mistakes in Pathology, you can also do Robbins and Cotran Review of Pathology

Work on ur week areas. Finish ur UW & work on ur NBME mistakes
take NBME 11 & 12 next time. You will be fine....
Good luck

What are you aiming for?

I did form 7 yesterday and managed a 490, but I wont be postponing because of SD of 100 on that form.

That can easily mean that I could end up with a 240 on the 3 digit scale on the real thing (+1 SD) (not likely haha )

Have you looked into doing pathoma instead of Golgian (if path is your weak spot of course)? Dr. Sattar came to our med school and gave us a demo of his lecture and book. It's much more to the point than Golgian. For $100 he you get his book and access to his video lectures (which are golden btw). He illustrates stuff and says it all in a way that clicks in your head. I just used his video lectures and you can get through them in one week.

You can read some reviews for it at sdn forums if interested.
