Default How to combine Goljan Rapid Review with Pathoma?

Hi, I have just started my pathology review and since I heard contradicting feedback on the whole Goljan vs Pathoma thing I just ended up getting both of them.
Now I'm listening to the Goljan audio as well as going through RR 4th edition. However I realise that its a bit too detailed and has more wording and integration than the more concise pathoma. So my question to those who have used both resources, did you go through all of rapid review with the audio and simultaneously read the topics from pathoma? Or does completing Goljan first then going through Pathoma help cement the HY topics?
Thanks

personal advice haven't taken the steps myself yet but memorize pathoma and read goljan both books are goldmines pathoma gives you pathology on a plate and goljan teaches you how to apply the knowledge

If you want to learn the information and learn it right, do Pathoma! It is a great foundation for learning or relearning the info. Goljan is a great way to apply it clinically, or hear it in a different way, so you can REMEMBER the info. I still have passages from Goljan memorized.
