Kaplan Medical Which Kaplan videos?

I posted this in a previous thread, but it was not the original question of that post. Want to make a seperate thread of this.

I am trying to complete my first read within the next 8-10 weeks, and I am willing to skip certain videos if it is not useful and are simply reading from the book. I have gone through Physio, Path (Pathoma), and Pharm. I found those to be pretty useful as they make important connections and integrations from other subjects not mentioned in the book. However moving foward as I try to complete my first read, which of the remaining videos are recommended and which ones to skip (Anatomy, Histo, Embryo, Neuro, Biochem, Behav, Micro, Immuno)?

I would like to hear from several forum members. Thanks in advance...

for me, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, and Behavioral were great. I also liked physiology, but that was more of a passive watch, because I feel physio has always been a strong point for me.

Not sure about Anatomy. Histo was very difficult for me to get through, I decided to skp that section. Gross was a bit of a drag. But Neuro was solid with the notes.

I didn't do Microbiology/Immunology. just used CMMRS for that, and also the Immuno section in the micro lange book, which i already used during med school, and am very familiar with it.

Pathology, pathoma and nothing else. and wrapping it all up with Goljan RR and his audio and high yeild notes.

One point though, i noticed that high yeild cell and molecular biology was recommended (high yield series). i can't seem to find it, but i had a copy on pdf file, and i browsed through it, i think its an EXCELLENT source for tying up all the molecular stuff together, overlaps very nicely with the kaplan sections from biochemistry book. will definitely go through it again.

Well if u don't understand the notes well after reading then u need the vedios.
Personally I would not recommend skipping any vedio if u have time. 8-10 weeks means u don't have time. So then do biochem, neuro, behav,.
