Goljan Can you manage with only the audio?

Speaking about Goljan pathology of course, those who got 99 before and everyone else taking the test, Can you manage with only the audio? Or is RR a must?
I can try to push RR into the already tight schedule..but is is worth it? or should I avoid that in this critical time?
Concerning the notes, (the 146 pages)..What do you think? try to push them in too?

You can check this poll for your query regarding the necessity of Goljan RR.

However, if you have less time and your scores on question banks is good, i find no reason why you should read it. It all depends on how well you are using your knowledge for the questions.

I checked that poll, but I am not talking about the necessity of the book (we all know it's important), it's about how well will you manage your test with only the audio, 'cause the book will need a lot of time which can be spent on Qbanks for example, or reviewing FA..

To this I would say : However, if you have less time and your scores on question banks is good, I find no reason why you should read it. It all depends on how well you are using your knowledge for the questions.

Yup - again - its about how well you know your material and why you're getting the questions wrong. If its details that you're missing out and you can follow the question for the most part until the last few associations you're fine and Goljan RR is not important. Otherwise well, the margin notes in Goljan RR are pretty useful too.

Definitely use something like webpath to look up slides though - that apparently comes in handy...
