Hi, Noir!

FA, for me, is basically a book-version of a list of forgettables.

People say it's enough for:

I think it has good summaries for the ff subjects:

(Note that I said good "summaries". I mean tables/diagrams or the way the topics were condensed. I do NOT mean it's complete, comprehensive, or even enough for these subjects.)

I won't rely on it for:
Anatomy (although, in some systems, it can pass)
Histo (is this even in FA?)

As for Patho, well, it's the bulk of the exam. Given the gravity of this subject, FA is least complete in this subject.

That's just my opinion though. Others may think differently.

Hope this helps. Good luck!
