Goljan is great for pathology concepts, the audios might confuse you if you have not done much reading, because it integrates many subjects.
I will advice that you first read the Goljan pathology book, especially rapid review 3rd edition before the audios.
Kaplan's barone for pathology is not bad either if u have the time, otherwise, stick to Goljan.. it will pay off.

Hello!

Hopefully others will continue to respond with their feedback, but as tunde michael wrote, students often use one or both. Of course, we are most familiar with Kaplan notes with which many, many students have succeeded. Dr. Goljan's notes are quite popular also, and we can attest to their quality as Dr. Goljan used to teach for Kaplan!

We recommend not using too many resources as it could slow down your prep.
