Pathoma's a relatively new player that's why it hasn't got a lot of votes yet, but a friend of mine also recommended it. He got a 244. I've started with Goljan that's why I'm not shifting. It's too late in my prep. But if I'm in my first read, I'll definitely try Pathoma and see for myself. Why don't you try it? If it's good, go for it. You'll never know unless you try.

Pathoma is AMAZING. Seriously life-changing. I'd definitely recommend it for a high yield, easy-to-understand review. Best part is that you can go through it in a week.

I'm planning on using it as my main Path learning source and then supplementing with Goljan.
