Go to pathoma.com and buy the pathology lectures they 100$ and u get 35 hours online lectures and book will be posted to u.pathology and histopathology review is awesome
i like it much more than goljan .

actually i came to know about it from studentsdoctor forum .in US students use it rather than goljan now.its the new thing now.

u will be scoring more than 80 % in UW (in pathology)after going through this

absolutely doing UW 2nd pass with other books in the to do list is pretty difficult!! i like doing it subject wise but it takes long time for me to finish a block even in the 2nd time! and i am not able to finish even 2 blocks a day.many do the wrong ones again but i am doing the whole q bank.
How many are u able to do?.
