Default KLN or FA??

i have read KLN with videos once. a lot of people told me to read KLN again with first read of FA.. but reading it again is just draining me out!! is this a better way to go now instead of revising KLN ALL OVER AGAIN??? Is it better to do FA with offline Uworld and then move on to online.??

First aid is an absolute must. I couldn't stand Kaplan notes, but that's just me. :-)

so, you would advise just doing FA now? KLN is really starting to annoy me.

Kaplan must never annoy u.
U must know it cool.
If u did it well the first time, though u might have forgotten most, u would realised that u would spend only 10% of the time u spent.
I used 1 month for Kaplan anatomy whilst working but 2nd round was 4 days.
2nd round of Kaplan is not necessary if ur first read is not long ago and concepts are fresh if not then the way to go is to do 2nd round. If u avoid it self assessment would hit ur concepts so had that nobody would tell u to go back to Kaplan again.

I guess cause its been a while since i read them and going back to read them i feel intimidated that i forgot the things its definitely going much quicker the second round. i guess im just losing faith

Yeah, it annoyed me too. I loved First Aid. It was so easy to study around the stuff in that book. The material I didn't know in my exam wasn't in Kaplan. I'm pretty certain you can easily answer 80% of the questions using FA as the sole resource. Just do an NBME online. If you get over 240 cram FA till your exam and you'll get a great score. Good luck.
