Default Pathology

Hii guys,hope u all are doing well.

Well I have a question,(though I guess it was asked many times in the forum).

What to study for pathology?Goljan RR(the 700pages one) or Pathoma.

I had finished pathology for Indian Pg last year and im quiet good with pathology concepts.I finished haemat from FA and with my previous knowledge,I did Uworld and could answer more than 95% of the questions correctly.

I have my exams in another 3 months and din't do patho specifically fr mle,Im almost done with other subjects but.

Yes Pathoma! This would be more than enough to score above 250. And besides you seem to be very strong at it already!

All the best

Definitely Pathoma for the sake of brevity! Dr. Sattar will fortify your fundamental concepts in pathology. You can use Goljan to quickly review the chapters you have finished from Pathoma. The way I do it is, I first read the chapters with the videos from Pathoma, then I quickly review the corresponding chapters from Goljan but only the blue side texts, bold texts, texts in blue boxes and all the slides.

And you don't need to watch the Kaplan patho videos. Dr. Sattars videos are enough!

They are not a must. Most of the information is already in the LN. For most of the time, the videos help you better understand what is written in the LN. So if you are already getting the big picture (not minor useless details) from the LN alone then I don't really think you need to watch the videos. But if you are lacking understanding with the notes alone, then do the videos.
