Hello guys, Miss patho, I think you are doing well, there is some stuff which is difficult to memorize, however UW gives you the most high yield topics, those you can review in the books. The same thing for Ob/Gyn.

Default Fastest LEDs review

I used haikais in pediatrics. It is cartoon based. I found it the fastest and greatest peds review by far. Be sure to review heme from elsewhere

Basically the book is targeted for visual learners It contains all the high yield materials. I went over it like 3 times. The pages can be flipped real fast the first time may take u between 4-6 hrs or more second round I went through stuff I needed reinforcement. Day before the exam it took me 30 mins max to skim through I supplemented with usmleworld q only. For me going through all the peds material from books that have bulleted texts was very difficult. The cartoons in this book is so effective that I still remember all the milestones. Good luck

Thanx for your valuable feed back btw you said that to cover this book for the first time it should be taking around 4-6 hours in total .... thats it????
so do you think Haikasi+uworld peds Qs should be sufficent for peds portion and one can dump kaplan peds lectures or are there any particular portions of Haikasi (e.g hematology chapter) that needs to suppemented with other book???
thanx again for your valuable feedback
