First Aid What parts of FA for CK Needed?

Hello.
I have done with first read using KLN + video lectures + Kaplan CK Qqbank. Now I am stuck to mtb 2+3. Recently I have discovered in some threads that people advice to read some parts from FA for CK missing from mtb 2+3.
Can somebody mention what parts should we read from FA? Is it necessary?
Or mtb 2+3 complemented with uworld is enough?
Please help.

MTBs and KLN are more than enough, you don't need FA at all. Also can you post your Kaplan q bank aggregate score on my thread, thanks :-)

I got these from someone's post, I don't remember who :

===
you are welcome. In my opinion, The most topics from FA step 1(2012) - pages regarding the topics are- P52-53-54-55, P115-116-117, P234, P237-238, P273, P308-309-310-311 and the Rapid reviews at last.
Good luck

from another post:

what to revise from step 1 -- (stick to FA/ medessentials.. which ever one u read during step 1)
read the PSY section from FA.
Immuno deficiency diseases like Brutons/SCID etc (just the table from FA)
Glycogen storage diseases
Neimen picks and gauchers.
Biostats from FA
=====

good luck.

Stick to kaplan and you will be more than fine. Going for step 1 books is way overkill, remember this is step 2 CK exam not step 1. There will be very very very few step 1 questions.

I think FA step 2 CK might help in certain aspects. Although I have the 7th edition ( 2010 edition ), I've realized that the musculoskeletal system ( FA ) has some more materials than the rheumatology section ( MTBs ). Like the FA has comprehensive list about orthopedic injuries in children and some minor cases such as Bursitis. In the Neurology section, I saw that FA gives a list of the cranial nerves and their function and types. This might be known to someone who just did their step 1, but I think refreshing that basics is a plus. All in all, I'd recommend that you keep FA Step 2 CK close by for some sections, and transfer some notes onto your MTBs for future review. I hope this helps.
