I have done Pathoma and am a big fan of it.. My advice to you would be to do the VIDEOS WITH THE PATHOMA BOOK..

Dr. Sattar explains really well and he follows the book so it would be easy for you to keep track of it.. plus there are very good pictures in it which he explains as well..

So go for the videos and the book.. it will take some time, but will get your concepts right.. then when ur done with the concepts, you can memorize FA, and that should be more than enough!

Save It!

I agree, Pathoma online videos are a must. Everything makes so much more sense after you watch the videos.
Good luck

Depends on what you want!! and of your time too.
i chose to go with FA + Pathoma, so listened to the lectures and wrote everything new into FA, of course it takes time and space and also your hand hurts a little lol , i have my FA in a 3 inch binder and filled it with all my pathoma notes because i chose to only have 1 huge book instead of two.
i now have there my uworld notes, so right now is a very large binder. i would say for every other page i have one additional white sheet with lots of info.

Did pathoma videos with Goljan RR. It helped improved my patho scores. It is time consuming though...

BOTTOM LINE:

If you want to ace Step 1, go for Pathoma Videos & Book + FA + UW

If you want to be a "mini-pathologist", do Goljan + Pathoma + UW + FA

Default Pathoma Textbook

I have pathoma videos downloaded and want to get the book alone.
Does anyone know where I can get it without videos?
Also, do the videos change every year or are they the same?
