Help Biochemistry and Immunology

Dear Friends,

I have completed my first read with kaplan LN for all the subjects except for pathology..i am planning to start FA with UW, my exam date on December..should i read kaplan LN for Biochemistry and for immunology, or shall i stick with FA with UW for all the subjects

because when i compare kaplan LN with FA for immuno and Biochem, i afraid that i would miss alot of topics from kaplan LN for these topics when i compare with FA,

so friends, please help to sort out this..

I strongly recommend hearing the Kaplan videos for both subjects, FA is not very clear in them and I think you should watch the videos to understand the topics. Biochemistry videos would take you some time, but the immuno vidoes will not take more than 2 days ...

Aha ! From my experience in UW and NBME I think that FA is enough
Kaplan is useful mostly for explanations not for the low yield info
