Choose any of them they are all rated A+ in FA 2013. In fact Goljan is standard per what I hear but pathoma matches up so well. Recent test takers who used pathoma say they were able to answer > 95% of patho and pathophys with pathoma. Goljan has more than necessary for step 1.
The option is urs!

What about pathoma videos only with rapid review book plus GOlJAN audio???I heard that the tables, images and blue side notes are extremely high yield and GOLDEN. Pathoma is great as an introducton, GOLJAN connects everything.
What you decided??

I think only those who hv read the two books shd vote. Or better still those who hv read them and hv taken the exams shd vote to make it more reliable.

Default Goljan Dr Raj Videos

Goljan's student Dr Carlo Raj has a new video series: 54h pathology + 500 questions versus pathoma 35h, very modern video format at least - it's fairly new I think: www lecturio com > usmle > pathology - has anyone tested it yet?
