Arrow No universal answer

There's no universal answer to this question.

It all depends on what you have done and what are you're strengths and weaknesses.

If you are asking which topic is covered most in the exam then I suggest you have a look here

well it was not all tough.. there were many easy questions on anatomy too...like from brachial plexus i got three questions.. memorize the pic of brachial plexus...
maybe unfortunately i got the topics which i didn't have grip on..
i memorized bowel blood supply.. which is very imp topic, almost everyone gets a question or two on it.. but i didn't get any..
i got the relations of structures on neck.. there was a question regarding relation of recurrent laryngeal nerve in neck.. question were experimental and long on immunology..

Thanks But as far as I understand there was nothing from outside of Kaplan in terms of anatomy, right?
I just watched Kaplan videos and I'm doing the 2nd read of anatomy KLN along with annotating to FA. some neuroanat details are just overkill to study at once for me...
