I was thinking of doing the pathoma videos for a good explanation and then reading the blue notes on goljan rr after every video and annotate everything in first aid. By the way I really appreciate all the advice. In this time of stressful studying; in which I am always thinking 3 or 4 times before deciding what I should do. It's always good to get some other opinions and I thank everyone who can give some advice.

watch all the pathoma videos and also make ur own notes by watching them and then memorize them.
it will be enough!
Plus do FA , read it many times as u can or memorize it if u can. once u r done with them solve question banks(uworld,kaplan,usmleRx)

do it with ur heart! and believe in urself.
JUST DO IT!

I am using Pathoma plus FA. RR seems like too much info, I use it to look things up I don't understand.
