Goljan What IS Goljan?

I haven't used any Goljan resources before so I'm confused about what students mean when they refer to it. I'd like to start on it based on the reviews.

What does doing Goljan entail? Listening to the live lecture audio recordings and reading his Rapid Review book? What about the images that are posted online in reference?

And how long does it take to cover Goljan?

Goljan is actually a great pathology teacher who wrote Rapid Review of pathology and some old non official audio lectures have been circulating around for years. Its a great resource for pathology but i would highly recommend to ask yourself what kind of student you are and can you manage to do a book of 600-800 pages with so much knowledge easily or not because you also have a very good new alternative named PATHOMA by Dr.Sattar which is a concise but amazing resource with brilliant interactive video lectures. I did amazing just using Pathoma and so did alooot of students i know so make your choice. Dont force yourself to do Goljan RR if you cant cause it can be overwhelming for some (like it was for me)

you can refer to my post here
Pathoma is the new goljan
