Guys, NEURO is probably my weakest subject. Do you recommend going over HY Neuro? How long do you think it will take ? Or do you think Neuro from Kaplan + Qbanks + FA should be enough ?!

kaplan neuro is beautifully written but it simply doesnt have enough gross photos
so the problem, at least for me, was that i understand what they were saying but i couldnt picture where they were talking about and hence, it was hard for me to make connections later down the road
so i got HY neuro and its great for pics but its text is little to none
nonetheless, i think the best approach is HY + kaplan neuro.
neuro was my second weakest and now im alright at it
questions like this are pretty easy in fact.

it took me 6 days to go through HY neuro.

Oh ok. Did you go over HY Neuro right after doing it from Kaplan or did you use kaplan alongside? I want to start DIT by April 6th and I dont know where to fit in HY Neuro

i did kaplan neuro like 2,3x (over a spand of many months) in total before realizing that i need to attack it from another source.
so i did HY.
i didnt have kaplan open with it, however on the last day i think i did skim over kaplan, just because i am familiar with some of their diagrams.

I just finished HY Neuro, it is a very good book and its figures are very good. My suggestion is to read HY neuro + tests.

Ok thanks, I will look into it and see if I should use HY Neuro. I just gotta be more effective at time management I guess and fit it into the schedule somewhere
