First Aid FA Subjects/Systems chapter size and relation to high yield

hi everyone i was wondering about this when I counted the pages of each subjects in first aid 2010 edition
I found this:
*****patho 111 pages the highest subject of all
1- hematology 14 pages
2- cvs 13
3- reproductive 13
*****moving to number two subject is PHYSIOLOGY 80 pages
highest for
1- cns 30 pages !
2- cvs 11
3- renal and Respiratory 8 pages

****third place for believe or not its a the ANATOMY AND PHARMACOLOGY
BOTH 60 pages
then MICRO 59 pages
then Biochem for 50
so do the percentage of these pages distribute equally with the number of percentile questions ..?
