Default Neuro on step 1

Hey guys,

I've heard over and over again that FA is not enough for neuro. I dont know why people are saying that since neuro is longest section (almost 50pgs) in FA. Is it only the brain slices that the book is missing or is it missing other concepts as well?

Thanks!

Thanks. It's just that I didn't find uw questions to be that difficult after studying FA, but I've heard many people say that Neuro is the least complete in FA. I actually find anatomy and physiology to suck in FA. just my thoughts...

on my test, i would say fa didn't cover all of pathophys+phys
but on the other hand, there are just only so limited number of hard ques they can give you on the test... or else it would be unfair for you if you get too many...

fa is good, since you are doing good in uw, i think it's good enough
i would say hy and kaplan anatomy is good to add on, but not always necessary, depends on your time
