First Aid Is FA Microbiology enough?

hello every1
Is FA micro in general and bacteriology in particular enough for the exam??? i read micro from KLN almost 6 months back so hardly remember anything now.

My exam in a month and going back to KLN would consume a significant time

so can I rely on FA for bacteriology???? is it enough????

More than enough, but make sure you do the question banks also so you will ace the micro in step1

FA + Uworld = Almost all micro questions on my exam. I wasted a lot of time doing CMMRS & Kaplan. There is absolutely no use. Unless you slept through the year they taught microbiology

Good Luck!
