Default Really disappointed with Kaplan histology videos..

I am weak in histology and was hoping to make better concepts with the videos...

However, I just watched the first 4-5 chapters of Histology and I have to say the guy really sucks. I was really struggling with histology (bone, collagen, ECM chapters) and hoped watching the videos would help...but nope...the guy pretty much just reads off the slides word for word and the most difficult topic atleast for me (bone, ossification) the guy skips soo many things...I don't know what to do Should I refer to some other book for histology?

Yes, you should just get another book in histology. Remember, you still have a second and third read to do. It will be really painful and frustrating to go through Kaplan histology all over again. Check online pdfs of HY histology. If you like it, go for it.

james white(that histo teacher of 2010 video) actually gives a clear idea about neurology in neuroanatomy...but yeah he is absolute waste of time when histo is considered..just relax..histo is not high yield...so go through KLN..then u FA and uworld...u will be okay

the anatomy video sucks, green one. Saw the older version, only found helpful neuroanatomy, and embryology. Embryology though by the older DR. and neuro by the DR with the glasses.

You can't get high quality goljan audios. The only ones available are the 'self recorded sounds' that you mention. And there are no lecture videos, only audio. Remember these are from 2000-2002. Some person recorded them and they have been circulating on the internet ever since.
