Great question!! I am actually wondering about the same thing! I'd love to hear feedback from people about which chapters are great in Medessentials.

well i havent cleared step 1 yet..so when i say this anybody taking my words will take it at their own peril
KME is great in all places and i found something or the other new in this book from FA in almost every chapter..but CNS,CVS,biochem and behavioural science were so exhaustive that i felt KME is must read in these areasregarding oher chapters the anatomy and physiology parts are far more in KME for every system than in FA..have to supplement that though in the end how much i can retain is still a big qs for me

hello everyone, even i am half way through my kaplan lecture notes and now i started adding extra points to FA but it was too time consuming as well as i didn't like FA format, kind of tough to remember...its more like cramming... simultaneously i had look at old version of med essential and i kind of really liked it... so do u guys suggest me to go through FA or MEdessential...

2nd --- can someone tell me the link where i can download latest version of med essential... its not available in my city.
