PATHOMA is also very good for pathology, and it has videos+text so for me was easier to follow. But Goljian was also amazing

Thumbs Up

Believe me nobody will know if you well prepared , until you do qbank and self assessment tests and you will see where you are stand .

Since you completed Dr.najeeb lectures , what do you think about
-Bio,mole bio & genetic
-neuroanatomy
-immuno
-CVS physio
and in one word, rest of subjects ?

Did you watch kaplan videos ?

Good luck , your plan sounds good

Sure..najeeb's lectures of neuroanatomy ,immunology,physiology,embryo,biochem are very helpful ..especially physiology,biochem...but it took me almost 3.5mnths 8hr study to complete all najeeb lectures .after listening his lectures i am able to easily memorize kaplan n brs.
BUT to answer mcqs only najeeb lectures are NOT sufficient..
For kaplan video lectures pharm,BS,biochem are helpful but u juzt need to watch kaplan 1.5x speed aftr najeeb.

Hello, I am thinking of using Najeeb as my basics knowledge is really weak. Do you think it is worth the time? Or should one just go for Kaplan? How did you ended up doing in step 1?
