Calculating expected compensation for acid-base disturbances

Do we really have to know this for the exam? I mean, acid-base, especially mixed acid-base disorders, are hard enough by themselves. I don't think I can memorize these calculations. Really, did anyone had to do these calculations on the exam?

Well, I'm reading Goljan RR, acid-base disturbances, right now. And there are some formulas how to calculate expected compensation for particular disturbances, e.g. how to calculate expected increase in bicarbonates in acute or chronic respiratory acidosis.

Have not come across it yet. Yet to decide whether Goljan is a must do since pathoma I hear is equally good.

Goljan RR is great book. I feel like almost everything you need to know is there. My opinion is that Dr Goljan is genius. But, considering it has about 600 pages, I think I will have to revise from Pathoma.
