Default Advice please

Hi every one
I am an IMG, a mom of one son and now feeling my self sooo confused
I started perparing very long time ago only read kaplan physiology, bio. Bs, and Goljan
I should started micro but I changed my mind and started first aid physiology
I decided to re read these subjects again with FA to add any extra informatin
My question is about other subjects (micro, anatomy, pharma.) if I only study them from FA with uw will that be enough or I should look at least for the videos ? bc kaplan well take time
Any answer is appreciated (put in ur mind my goal is 250+)

Thanks

To aim for a 250+ just do the Zum Zum method.

Thanks for replying
But as he said this method needs a full time studying but I have other duties
So my question again if my goal is 250+ and I study micro, pharma, and anatomy only from FA and uw ,will that be enough?
I will be more confident with more replies

Thanks and good luck

Pharma is enough with FA.

I'm not so sure about Anatomy and Microbiology. I would complement Anatomy with High Yield Gross Anatomy & High Yield Neuroanatomy and Microbiology with Clinical Microbiology Made Ridiculously Simple.

To obtain a 250 requires lots of study, so I'd suggest that for each subject you have a review book to guarantee you'll obtain a high mark.

That's my POV.
