Listening Hematology and genetics/molecular bio for Step 1?

hey guys,

back from the motherland....just restarted the prep again! had a question about hematology and genetics/molecular bio....

personally I think hematology is kind of deficient in core concepts in FA....so anyone who is good in hematology would you lemme know of where a good source is to read through to get the basic concepts and numbers (WBC, RBC...etc)

I've heard of a lot of my peers tell me that genetics and molecular bio has pushed a 5th gear on the step....but still most say that FA is enough, I've always been good at genetics but this is kind of scaring me, how in-depth should our knowledge be for the genetics/molecular bio portion of the step 1?

any help would be appreciated! thanks again guys!

I have found that Goljan's lectures are great for Hematology. He has about 8 hours worth of lectures on Hematology alone. If you don't have time to listen to them, you can also read his audio transcript for the hematology section.
