Cool KLN Surgery--understand it or cram it ???

After going through few pages of KLN-CK-Notes surgery book I think most of the material just needs cramming and there is hardly any logic in it except very few things .....

Depends how much time you can devote to surgery and what your target score is. Surgery is typically a low yield subject so KLN along with QBanks are sufficient. But if you are aiming for the sky then you might wanna read more review books.

But there r so many diseases given in surgery ,each having different means of diagnosis and best tests and treatment...this all needs cramming , there is very little part of understanding, so finding it very hard.....
