Planning Getting crunch time! Minor subjects help

Alright guys, its getting crunch time.....2 months out and I haven't touched histo or embryo (except for FA).....question for those who have completed the step 1 or those who have recently found a neat short cut to embryo and histo prep......where do I cover those subjects from so I know for a fact that I have my bases covered for exam day?

oh and another question, I did MRS for micro and Levinson for immuno + FA, this should be enough for micro and immuno rt? what about Kaplan genetics is that enough?

as always thanks a bunch guys

I think histo can be covered while you do your pathology.
Embryo is covered well in the First Aid, as long as you did the q's for it and drive home the concepts you should be good there.

Genetics do your first aid as well, really know your tables for Lysosomal and Glycogen disorders. Do the BRS Genetics as well. its a smaller book than the BRS physio but it really helps out and fills in the stuff that FA doesn't give. As well, the BRS genetics also covers the Biochem really well, so you're getting a 2 for 1 deal on that.

Kaplan + First Aid are enough for the topics you're asking about.
