Kaplan q bank for sure. and if you don't think you'll have time to go over all of it, make sure you do the molec biology section+physiology. They've got some pretty awesome questions there. It is a little too detailed sometimes, but its good if you're aiming for 240+. RR is a pretty big book and its easy to get overwhelmed with the material but if you really wanna do it, just run through the side notes and blue boxes.

It's arguable, and there's no guarantee, but if you've already done Uworld, FA and some other source for path (brs, pathoma, RR), Kaplan can only add to/reinforce your knowledge. As I said, their questions are not very good for every subject, but they do offer good explanations. Just my 2 cents

Have done FA 2x and doing it 3rd time now with UWORLD ...read kaplan notes just once and UWORLD 2nd time. Have not read anything for pathology...am averaging 70% in pathology in UWORLD and overall 74%.
Do you think i need a book for pathology in the last month? and if so which one ?
thanks.

Yeah kaplan qbank would be fine.But if you really want to read pathology in the last month I think you should have a nimble read of Kaplan Patho not Goljan because it is way too detailed
