Goljan Some people say Goljan Goljan Goljan

My question for you is that if i did Kaplan LN along with Goljan audio and FA will I be OK for pathology?
Some people say Goljan, Goljan, Goljan and some swear by Kaplan.
I am not trying to find any short cuts here. Its just that I have been studying for so long (I am a mom) that I cant afford to waste anymore time in too much details....waiting anxiously for your answers.

Hi,
I've already done Step 1. I did listen to all of Goljan, it was very very helpful to me; just listening to him talk and even when he jokes about certain things related to medicine, will stick in your head. Kaplan LN are in my opinion, too much. I did, however, review parts of the most difficult topics for me, e.g. hematology, eh....parts of gastro I think; basically, whenever I read something in FA that I wasn't too clear about, I would then go and check kaplanLN. This is my opinion, but then again, please consider I also read certain chapters from Goljan's book. That surely helped me too. I can tell you for sure that patho and pathophys are most of what came in the exam. I am grateful to kaplan qbank's and UW's sections on these two topics. I learned a lot from them as well. Hope this helps!.

Thank you for replying....I guess I will do Goljan lecture notes with his audio....if I am still scoring low in Pathology then I will go and read Kaplan.

Thank you

The answer to your question is yes especiallly if u add up the Questions and explanations oF UW and +/- Kaplan qbank
one of my class fellow did Kaplan lecture notes plus both qbanks + goljan audio (no FA no Goljan book) he scored 254
I didnt touch Kaplan Patho LN , did the 2nd Edition Golajan not the latest which is too lenghty , along with both qbanks i scored 255.

P.S. :it doesnt matter a lot which one of these two options u use, what matters more is how well u use them, so make a plan and stick to it and HAVE FAITH IN IT, if u keep on reading different peoples opinion u'll get confused and will begin to doubt if its good enough or not, the qbank will give u a hint on it and the NBME will tell you for sure. Good luck!
