Listening BRS Physiology and Kaplan Videos Combo!

I feel kaplan is a very bad book and it is hard to read .. disorganized , badly written and full of low yield concepts but the videos are awesome so i watch the videos and read the chapters from BRS Physiology instead of Kaplan !

but i fear that i will miss a lot of concepts ! is the combination of BRS and the videos enough ?

Advice ?

KAPLAN book is actually not that bad , if you go through it once with lectures and highlight important stuff it gets easier. I read both BRS and KLN and i loved physio lectures. I think if you can listen to kaplan lectures and read BRS it would be a great combo , you wont miss out on many important things. One main reason BRS is so concise is that it mainly focus on PHYSIOLOGY and less focus on PATHOPHYSIOLOGY (which is highly focused in kaplan book ) , so if your pathology book lacks a bit of pathophysiology , like the PATHOMA book then i would recommend atleast go through Kaplan once
