Goljan How to have best benefit from the Goljan audio?

I am currently doing the Goljan audio and Goljan books, feel a bit lost cuz Dr.Goljan explains in the lecture on slides which make it sometimes difficult to get the whole point through audio.
I need a method please to make me benefit the most from the whole Goljan system..
Thanks a lot

I have the same problem but there's just isnt any way out of it. Just listen harder, you'll understand even the things he's explaining on the slides.

Well.. I thinkk the best way is as Goljan says not to underline the points in the book or write wen listening to him.. instead just listen in full concentration and then read ur books.

you can use the audio transcript to follow him, maintaining open the slides and stop the audio for seconds every time he is referring to a specific slide

I also agree with the above poster. Do a quick reading, zooming through pages, not paying absolute attention and only to get familiarized with the images and where everything is located. Then, while listening to the audio, go through those pages once again and annotate if you want to. I honestly think that at the time he recorded the videos, he showed most of the same images that are currently in his RR book. Goljan Rocks!

is it true that all of the images he talks about, are actually located in the RR book itself? or is he talking about other slides that is not in the RR book?

and thanks for the audio transcripts. been trying to track them down for some time now!
