I own:
*Robbins Basic Pathology
*Goljan Rapid Review 4ed
*Pathoma

Many books I guess, and I prefer going through pathoma once,watch the video to get the basics,then listen to goljan lectures and finally read his rapid review book to learn almost everything regarding patho and also integrate it with physio pharm micro almost everything...

Hi guys,

By my experience, goljan audio is easy to combine with pathoma videos after every chapter. It is easy to find the written transcript of those audios if you Google.

If time is not a problem, it would be a good idea to read Rapid Rewiew. Otherwise the best approach I believe would be to watch Pathoma lectures (simple to understand) and follow it up with Goljan audios(a bit complex concepts). I also tried to read only the side notes in blue from Rapid Review book and whenever I though I didn't know something from those side note points after covering pathoma, I'd refer to the main text for clarification, this way one can cover most important points from Goljan Rapid Review quickly.

Ultimately with the basic knowledge, it all comes down to how well we can apply this knowledge to the questions. Uworld helps us do that perfectly.

Default pathoma videos plus goljan text is best combo

as goljan audio quality is not good, try pathoma videos supplement it with goljan text.
