Default why not FA for Step 2CK?

hey,
I have MTB-2Ck and First aid both. I saw the poll and people did not vote much for First aid. Why is that so? Whats wrong with FA for 2CK?
Do i proceed with MTB/FA for final revision?

Default Same question!

I have the same question. Someone told me that First Aid CK 7th edition is really good and much better than the old ones. So any words on that???

A lot of people don't do FA for CK because they feel is it deficient in some areas..according to other people's opinions.. I personally don't have it and won't buy it either. Already have MTB and really like it. At the end of the day..if your NBME score is decent, then it won't matter.
