I agree Goljan and Costanzo


I have two urgent questions, i hope anyone could help me:

1- I have Goljan book 3rd edition and heard about Goljan audio, but I don't know if the audios are for the 3rd edition or another edition, and if another edition can I use it with my 3rd ed book ?

2- Is there a major difference between Costanzo physiology 3rd & 4th edition (I mean Costanzo the more detailed version of BRS, not BRS) ??

First of all, imo the 4th edition of Goljan is a lot better than the 3rd edition. senetences are complete, it reads better. and because of that, it's more pages.

the audio are quite old, and only covers the important parts of the book, the higheest yeild.

don't make the same mistake i made. i also started with the big costanzo, and while it was a great read, you're better off just using BRS physiology, and for the more clinical stuff, watch the kaplan physiology, and QUICKLY read through the kaplan lecture notes.

in other words: don't let Physiology slow you down. get it done, and do it fast, and then you'll see the main concepts highlighted from FA, and qbanks.

good luck!
