actually that's what i'm doing right now. If you do this full time, i mean read only goljan, you can actually do it in 15 days.

Formula:
15 days tops full time:
Just read and complete the blue summaries on the sides, then if you want to read it again, you just read the sides. Believe me it works.

21 days tops:
Use the book and complete Goljans 46 pgs High yields. Its like the blue summaries on the sides of the book, but more complete and some extra data.That's what i'm doing, its taking me a little longer because i'm also doing FA and Qbank.


Audio is not that necessary to be honest if you read the book.

Actually when comparing Goljan and FA, they actually complement each other, goljan has some neat stuff, and sometimes FA has stuff that Goljan didn't go to deep. And remember that FA is the recent High yield material, and goljan is a compilation of High yields from more than 20 years.
