yes...look dude according to me,brs is overrated.don't fall for tht trap thinking tht brs will give u tht edge or something like tht.
Brs is helpful if you have limited time.

#1 reason - the questions and well written explanations. If you understand one, you're going to breeze through the other.

If you need video, use Kaplan. But BRS Physio's end of chapter questions makes it the best. And then final review questions makes it the best.

BRS is beautiful, concise, the questions at the end of each chapters wrap it up good.

If you are not so weak at Physio, like me, do BRS. Saves time.
If that's not enough, find a time to do Kaplan LN and videos.

If you have even more time, I recommend checking out BRS Physiology Cases and Problems. In my opinion is better than plain BRS for Step 1 purposes.
