Hi guys,
I am noticing there are some info that are found in Kaplan but missing from First AID.. For example Bordatella pertussis is almost never talked about in First AID even though there are so many important info like Leukocytosis, post-tussive vomiting, treatment, hypoglycemia due to increased sensitivity of the islet cells...etc

The Q is do I add these info to FA, or I only add the points stressed by the Q banks??
thank you

I'm still preparing for the Step 1 and what I'm doing is when I finished a Kaplan Lecture Note chapter I go straight to the First Aid and make annotations of any info (or a high yield one) that doesn't appear on the First Aid.

If you finished the LN, I recommend you to read the First Aid as you are doing and any info that you think is missing or need to improve go back to Kaplan and and do a quick review or annotation.
