Question How long to do Pathoma?

Anyone help me with something:
i found Pathoma a very good source, so im planning on watching the videos,
my time is short so i wanted to know HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FINISH PATHOMA? im planning to take the annotations on FA and then study them and then starting UWORLD for my final countdown (2 months after that)
please someone tell me how long does it take to complete PATHOMA on a quick pace since my time is short,
any advice will be helpful

Cool

For anyone interested i did Pathoma in 6 days, watching most days 6 hours per day and some 5 hours, at 1,5x speed some videos and 1.6x speed some others, just one word this guy is AWESOME, thanks to this forum i did Pathoma! otherwise i wouldnt have done it, now lets see what are the outcomes with my scores, hope it does help

i wrote down important stuff Dr.Sattar said that its not in KLN or FA, i havent done uworld yet so i cant say anything about that, but thanks to this doctor i think i might consider my FA to be complete now. now 10 days for studying FA back to back and then uworld.. final countdown!!!

Hmmm that man is God- giving. He is great. I did pathoma and so far so good at least uworld is showing dividend in the 70s with pathoma. Infact some of the things I got wrong were mentioned by Sattar.

i dont recommend you to spend less than 1 week for pathoma especially if you have more thn 2months to exam. If you do it quick then you will forget some concepts quickly. So i think the books like pathoma or goljan should be spreaded in time so you can grasp the material better and have time to think about it

Thank you for your input, i know! he says so many important high yield stuff that you should take time to understand and digest, that is why i made notes from every video (most videos gave me a side of a page full with info) which i attached to the correspondent page on the FA on that topic, so when i grab and study FA i will study with Dr.Sattar´s info.
