Good idea. Thanks. I am appearing in june probably so there isnt much time , considering i have only just started and its my first read of first subject so it looks like kaplan would be a good choice bcoZ its less time consuming plus there is fa to cram too. I feel so deprived of motivation .now i'm shakin. God help me

Honestly BRS Physiology is way much better and little easier to grasp the concept. Plus, each chapter has at least 30 questions to solidfy your reading. Top of that there's first aid. My combo is BRS Physiology plus FA and tons of questions. See if this helps!

i think use kaplan notes PLUS video. It's quite short if you skip the videos. Videos contain a lot of integrative and clinical material that i believe will be helpful. Remember that kaplan are mere lecture notes.... and not a review book.
