Default Please Help! Need Some Goljan Advice!

I have RR Path Third Edition, this is the book I used in med school but I heard the audio lectures are great too so I decided to get them.. However there are a bunch of "High Yield Notes" 36, 46 and a 100 pages file.. Are those necessary? Which is one best? I was under the impression that all I need is the RR book and the Audio notes..

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated thank you!

there r imp points on the margin of goljan RR book which r compiled by diff students into High Yield notes 36 46 and 100 pgs.if i m not wrong.

actually gojan in his audio did mention to go through those side notes really well.
so many students read the whole book once then near the exam read only those side notes(high yields)

hope it helps

The thing i'm doing, is using the 46 HY pages.

How:

I read the book, and annotate important stuff in the right or left sides, with the blue words on the book, most of the time needs more details, after i finish the chapter, i read the HY area, and go annotate whats is missing on the high yields.

You can then study directly from the high yield 46 pages, using the book to look pictures, and you can look also webpath for more pictures and high yield material.

by doing this, i think i can go more times through the high yields, instead of reading the whole book again.


Hope it helps.

Hi,
I am also doing pathoma, it seems way easier and most importantly interesting as compared to RR. However I am not sure if Pathoma alone would be sufficient. Has anybody done path with Pathoma alone?
