Kaplan would be waste of time don't touch it
I wanna ask you what do u think about the videos? Are there too many extra notes that u added on pathoma book?
Note: i studied from goljan 2 years ago its amazing but too detailed and nearly impossible to memorize but gives you a good understanding to solve questions. Tho pathoma is new and easier to memorize, my sis will take exam this year i recommend her pathoma but i dunno about the videos do would rele appreciate if u share ur opi5 on videos thanks

I always started with Pathoma, annotated the book while watching the lectures, then never returned to it again. It was great, but personally, I preferred Goljan's lectures and Rapid Review Pathology book. Yes, it's extremely detailed, but it has everything you need. The audios are also useful in that he ensures you have a good understanding of the topic as a whole while mentioning what the boards like you to know.
It's all a matter of preference in the end. But do try to play the audio lectures whenever you're jogging, driving, etc

Start doing uworld questions and annotating FA from your pathoma notes and if that works out, stick to it. Good luck!
