Help Need Suggestion Regarding Patho

Hey, so I'm one of those who gave an attempt at Goljan Rapid Review, but only managed to read about a chapter because it was really time consuming and seemed like a lot to retain at the time. I put it away and stuck with kaplan Patho instead, along with uworld. Does anyone think Kaplan Patho is enough to score well?

Also, I need to quickly review patho once more and don't really have time to listen to all of goljan audio (I listened to a few, but a long while ago). Is Pathoma less time consuming and a good source for the exam?

Thanks.

in med school, some of us complemented our text with kaplan, and others with BRS. i prefrered BRS myself. they both have overlaps, and from the 2007 edition of kaplan, there were things in there, not in the BRS, and vice versa.

but as for watching the patho videos for kaplan, they are a waste of time imo. and if you believe that kaplan lecture notes and videos should go hand in hand, then i think BRS might be a better option.

Thanks for the reply. So it takes 7 days to complete? How many hours per day ? Also, does it incorporate some physio into it? Thanks.
