I heard fa isnt as good as it is for step 1. Mtb2 n 3 are the review books people recommended everywhere while the specific books for subjects are kaplan lecture notes.

MTB is extremely summarized but it has important info u won't find in FA, i consider MTB a review of the review!
In my opinion they r not comparable.

Wot i think wud be ideal either the combination of Kpln lecture notes+ MTB or FA+MTB..
Good luck to all

I've browsed through FA for CK 7th ed. I find it 'dry' haha... It's just too wordy for me. For some reason I can stick to reading MTB 2 for a longer time than reading FA CK 7th ed.
