I don't want to stop you from reading the big Costanzo book if you have finished more than half of it, but I would highly recommend BRS physiology, even if it is your weak subject. It is high yield! My experience with reading it was that the first time I read it, I understood all the easy topics but still had trouble with the hard ones. The second read helped me improve a lot of what I didn't know. The third reading is helping me retain more of the info in physiology. I feel that BRS physio helped me understand every chapter except (Renal Acid/Base chapter) which is pretty difficult.

Highly recommend it BRS Physio

Thank you very much for your help, I've read two chapters from both books and you're completely right about it (BRS) being high yield. Even so, I think ill continue reading the larger text followed by BRS and see how that works out.
