Listening Done with the Pathoma Book

Hey , I want an advice from ones who used pathoma
I finished pathoma book along with FA, I understand everything in the book
the book was very simple , I am afraid that it is enough for usmle !!?? dont know if they ask simple things like this !?
My question is that is there anything additional ( additional information) in the videos, like does he say anything extra that it is not in the book or he just explains ? because I understand everything I dont think I need someone to explain things , or he adds information that is not in the book ???

thanks alot

Hi,
Since you have done with the book, it will be easy to watch the videos and add extra info he gives, he mentions high yield points now and then which you can highlight in the book, its 35 hr video and since u know the stuff, a week spent on videos is enough. 5 to 6 hrs videos per day.

Plus the explanation he gives while he shows histo slides and whiteboard explanations are amazing. You have lot of explanations to add from the videos.

If you do not have time, u can try answering flashcards of all pathoma flashcards floating around in quizlet website and add the extra points.
These flashcards contain all extra info he says. So worth it.

I promise you... the book is *&^@ compared to the video. Pathology has become my strongest area because of them. No joke.
