krebs cycle ATP ,, kaplan says 12,, FA says 10 !!

Krebs cycle ,as i know and kaplan video said , produces 12 ATP per cycle
1 GTP ×1
but in FA 2014 p103
It said 10 ATP/cycle & nothing in its errata
So confused i think its FA mistake ?

don't worry about it , its not that important , they just calculate it differently.Stick to FA because it is more updated that Kaplan.

Like Kaplan says,
1 GTP ×1

(No of atp x no of nadh) + (No of atp x no of fad) + (No of atp from gtp)

so 3x3 + 2x1 + 1 = 12

2.5x3 + 1.5x1 + 1x1 = 10
