The notes are short version and is very brief. RR is full book. I recommend reading RR if this is your first reading along with audio.

i've heard from many of my friends that goljan audio and his transcribed audio notes are enough for the path portion of the step. they got from the high 80s and above. RR is overkill.

depends, it depends

why? as an IMG we need high scores to be able to get into nice programs.
If you only want to pass it average... then first aid and UW is to formula, and yeah, listening to goljan audios might help.

But in my case, i want to overkill it.. so Rapid Review, plus his audios, and who knows maybe the robbins review if i have the time.
