Info Study Complement ALL the way or not?

Hi guys, please i would like some advice about how do i have to study Complement in Immuno, Kaplan emphasizes on the functions and the differences between them but ive heard people talking about studying complement with najeeb lectures which gives complement very detailed, so the question is..
Go with Kaplans advice or Go with Najeeb and really know complement well?

i would really appreciate any input
please help

Thanks for replying but can you please be more specific? Like do you recommend to study complement Very detailed then? Or just Like kaplan says main functions and differences?
Do you think complement is high yield? A friend of mine that just did step1 said to pay attention to kaplan... But i wanted to hear peoples opinion here but no one has one it looks Like!!

You don't need to memorize the complement pathways by heart. You just need to understand few concepts mentioned in high yield books.

yes, but what concepts? if you say dr najeebīs concepts then i should review the whole pathway, maybe not memorize it but take a look at it again... but Kaplan Videos 2010 say ONLY differences and the functions of each and of course the cytokines.. thats it..
if you say thats enough i can die in peace now.. lol, ive been struggling with it the entire night.. with dr najeeb i have to put a good hour or so, so thats a lot of time to invest on a topic.
