Question Is it necessary to read BRS Physio?

Hello everyone!!

I have recently completed the Live Online class with Kaplan (review soon!) and I followed the Kaplan notes and Videos along with it

I wanted to know if I really need to read BRS Physio or is Kaplan Physio enough? I will be doing First Aid and Uworld too. I am comfortable and familiar with Kaplan and the videos are quite good.

I don't have enough time to read through both so I don't really the point in starting a new book unless its really worth it.

Will BRS add anything that Kaplan doesnt have?

I did both Kaplan LN, the videos and also BRS physiology. BRS physio is a thin book and I finished it cover to cover in less than a week (read around 6 hours a day). I actually prefer BRS physio over Kaplan physio. BRS physio + FA + Uworld, and you are good to go

BRS physio all the way. You can be a lot more efficient using BRS. Kaplan is too much detailed for the step 1 exam and takes too long. It also doesn't have some of the high yield facts that you should know. BRS physio is quick and must read!
