hey .. i can undstand what ur going thru .. i had a tough time going through goljan .. even during my 2nd read. i'd suggest u to go through biochem and physio before goljan though. i think u shud even do micro and immuno before goljan .. because goljan kind of repeats and revises those things for u

Leave pathology till the last subject to study. Get through other subjects like biochem, and physio first. Path is a hard subject to get through b/e of the amount. I had a hard time getting through goljan as well..way too much info to grasp. Then I came across pathoma. The best thing to study pathology. Im actually using pathoma b/e it's straight forward and easier to grasp.

yeah i found goljan audio quite helpful .. i listened to all of them .. makes things easier to understand. its quite time consuming but i think its worth it. i dont know about pathoma, hvnt seen the book but frm what i've heard its a pretty good alternative!
