Default Medical Genetics - FA or Kaplan?

I've never really mastered Genetics (pedigrees, etc) and right now its looking like a pain in the eye. I was thinking of skipping reading it from Kaplan (6 chapters - back of biochem book) . I went through some of it in FA, however it doesn't seem like it covers Genetics totally. Does anyone have any suggestions? Maybe a recent exam taker?

Thanks in advance!

Same problem here! Learned from KLN and FA. I read somewhere that High Yield cell and molecular biology is the best book, but have no time to read that one too.

Default Suggestion

Ok so this is what i did and it totally worked for me. Spend one day watching genetics videos and read only side notes from Kaplan and then Fa. After that u do the questions n that will be enough. Hope that works for you guys too
