Goljan 4th edition is great .......check the preview here

They have
  • structured it even more ....added another chapter in the beginning explaining every labtest you will encnounter in the subsequent chapters
  • organized their sentences heavily so easy to read and understand
  • they have increased the high yield stuff in the margins so this makes it easy to review even more

just grab your 3rd edition goljan and compare it against the preview and you will know the difference ...

though a bit long than the previous edition about 750 pages as compared to the previous edition (600) .... but in my point of view this is a major update from the previous editions and highly recommend to buy it

Note: goljan doesn't pay me to advertise honest review though
