USMLE Books Is BRS Physiology enough?

Been years since studying physiology so forgotten most of it. BRS physiology seems very light, is it enough on it's own? (aiming for 99)

I have found kaplan videos VERY helpful. If you have time then def watch those. If not then Physio BRS can do.

I would recommend any kaplan physio video with Dr. K, the way he teaches it you will never forget it.

I love his stories about "Good ole Mista Jonezzzz"

Dr. K always tries to saves timmy

But Dr. Barone murders timmy every time

I would use a combination of Kaplan Physio + BRS Physio

I personally used High Yield Physiology + Kaplan Physio as i felt the high yield was a little more logical and practical based than the BRS... I just felt in my head at least that the BRS was too long while the high yield was short and sweet for me... Just enough information to be able to think about things in my head and get the bigger picture on things.
