Hi,
you are right! Kaplan is freaking insane and too much low yield info.
I would recommend going over Cell & Molec Bio HY book.
Its pretty concise and hits the exact HY areas you get tested on more in the step.
Look for the book online on google. there are a lot of e copies circulating on the net.
Hope this helps
Cheers

Thank you, Rose and Docji! I was thinking of buying that book for a few weeks now... But I wasn't so sure if it was just me (I panic-buy books ) or if I can really use it. Looks like I'm going to need it in my revisions or during crunch time...
