USMLE Books Robbins Versus Rapid Review

Hi!
I have the book "Robbins and Cotran's Review" because a friend said it is really helpful, but I also have read that has so many errors, is that true?
And how about Rapid Review by Goljan

Do you mean Rapid Review or Robbin's Review ? The former is an outline book, and the latter is a question book - neither one seems to have many errors, as far as I can see...

I find it useful! I learn well by doing questions, and Robbins Review has good questions and explanations. I use the third edition, and it's very useful for me...

Question Pathology Robbins & Cotran or Rapid Review Goljan

I was wondering what book I should buy for my step 1 prep, I was thinking to buy both books: Robbins and Cotran Review Pathology or Goljan's Rapid Review of Pathology.

Which one do you think will provide the most complete info? or it's a good idea to have both?
