USMLE Books Which Pathology Book? Am confused!

hi,

I am planning to start studying pathology but i don't know which book i should choose:
consider the books:
1) kaplan which is said to be not enough and mostly not recommended for pathology
2) Goljan which is recommended but really lengthy (700 pages)
3) pathoma which is new!! only 200 pages!!

some people say that study kaplan + goljan, others say that only listen to goljan audios + kaplan notes , some other students say that pathoma is brilliant...

Im so confused...
i am planing for 250+ score... it is really important for me to know which book to study with confidence that will be completely enough for the exam...

please help if you know the answer to my question,
thanks in advance

if you have enough time, do Goljan. He is tested and trusted OR

use pathoma with Goljan audio; people have scored 250 with this combo

never use kaplan pathology, its poorly written/arranged and their teachers suck big time

Goljan RR pathology is the best book ...you can rely on it..kaplan pathology is in fact not sufficient to ace step 1..and pathoma is a new book as you know, so there are not much reviews about this book

If your quarry is 250+ use Goljan.
It is huge but the best
