Question Annotating Pathoma into FA

Hey!

I was wondering how most people are annoting Pathoma into First Aid?

It's impossible to write everything from Pathoma into FA because it's a lot more information and there's not enough space in FA.

I'm thinking just writing/highlighting whatever he said was "HIGH-YIELD" besides the whole book being High-Yield.

Default Using Pathoma...

Hey!

Get a hard copy of Pathoma book and put into a binder. The book has built in blank space around the pages to add notes...Putting them in FA is too much writing. Put only annotations of UW into your FA.

Then review both books when you are studying I found this easier for me, hope that helps!

You should get a print of FA. 2013 FA downloadable copy is available, get a print out of it. Remember to print only on one side, other side will be blank. Now you have enough space for writing. I find it very congested to write around the empty space and so more chances that you ll see some low yield info and will take long time to review on last week!!!
So i am using red pen to annote UW points and blue pen from pathoma/kaplan, just for understanding
