If you have time do both, if not go through FA but integrate it with kaplan.

it all depends on how much of what you read you actually able to recall and most importantly understand.

Regarding Biochem...unless you really know it well...i would read KAPLAN again and again... There graphs/pictures are extremely good and very HY.

When you feel that you got all you could from Kaplan move on to FA...which is simply a very summed INFO.

Good Luck!

P.S.

There is no set of times you have read or to do or not to do something. It all depends on you and YOUR knowledge
