Goljan Important topics in Goljan Pathology

Hello
I bought Goljan recently. I found it to be very exhaustive so I want to cover only important topics from it (and rest from Kaplan).
Can someone guide me what important topics should be covered in priority?
Thanks in advance.

Try to listen to everything in Goljan and learn the concepts. Are you going to do the Kaplan videos or the lecure notes?

With ur time and situation. I would recommend pathoma. No one here can vividly point any topics in Goljan for u leaving others behind. That would make u deficient in those areas. So if u go by Goljan u do it all out.

If you are going to Goljan, do these chapters: Genetics, Nutrients, and environment. Rest do pathoma inside out. Kaplan LN are totally useless in pathology.

Thank you guys for the guidance.
I think I will go for Pathoma (and not Kaplan), and cover the above mentioned important topics from Goljan.
