Question Microbiology: FA 2014 vs Kaplan

Dears,

I hope you are fine and studying well with your plane.

Regarding best source in 2nd reading, actually my decision was to re-read microbiology Kaplan notes, but with First aid 2014 I think it is a great resource for Microbiology and seems enough for the exam.

Kindly, I need your opinion to take better decision and save my time.

Thank you

I gave up on kaplan lecture notes for microbiology at the first table, the format is total crap.

I read micro made ridic simple once, just because micro was a pretty weak subject for me starting out, then only used FA and question banks, and i think it was enough. I think if you know, as in understand and memorize, the micro in first aid, this and the question banks should be plenty!
