Goljan Dementia too detailed in Goljan!

I was reading Dementia in Goljan , which i found it very difficult so i went to check Kaplan's Patho and i found it much easier ... beside many of my IMG friends never read Goljan , they just went with kaplan and went fine ...
My question : Are these extra notes in Goljan like Secretase enzymes , GSK and it's Wnt regulation (regarding dementia which r not mentioned in Kaplan , even in its Biochem !! ) came in the exam ???
And if anyone reads Pathoma ..Do such details exist in that book , regarding dementia ?
I want to nkow what the hell this exam wants exactly ... my mind gonna blow out !
I really need to know that bcuz there r a lot of such tough informations
Thank you very much

This exam is all about highyields. Mostly in the exam as far as I've heard the most high yield concepts are tested but always in a different manner. Only reason i stress on doing pathoma over goljan is that Goljan is packed with a lot of low yield topics which we are never going to see in the exam. Other then that its a great book though. Kaplan is never recommended for pathology because its really not the best source to use for it
