Well first Glojan is not even necessary to be done!

IMO Goljan RR is TOO detailed... Audios on the other hand are nice and you can use them with reference to RR for pictures and graphs.

Kaplan Patho is a waste of time and i would advise even bother reading it.

PATHOMA is awesome for path....i found it a bit more useful the Goljan audios. And easier to do...since tehre is a book and videos!

The best way to do Path is to do both Goljan & Pathoma.

IMHO Goljan is a must since he integrates all the subjects very well and it's the integration of concepts which are tested on the real test than mere facts.

Pathoma you have to subscribe online. It's really cheap and IMHO the best bang for buck compared to other resources.
