Default FA for CK

I got to know from many people that FA for CK is worth doing for few topics. Does anyone has a list of such topics?

Any inputs would be highly appreciated.

Thanks!

Personally, I do not have that list of topics...

From my own experience, I had FA for CK preparation, and think it is a very VERY good book as MTB 2 or 3. Never regretted about having FA during CK prep!!! I did read FA once or twice and then just stayed on MTB 2 only (close to my exam).

Good luck!!

I am only half-way through my CK prep so I don't know how much this would help you but:
I bought MTB right from the start of my preparation. Then, going through Kaplan lecture notes and UW questions, I realized that MTB lacks so much information that annotating was not worth my time! On the other hand, I found on the internet the 7th FA edition and I began comparing MTB 2 and FA and realized that FA had a lot of information that I couldn't find in MTB 2 but was being asked about in UW questions. So, I decided to buy FA and now I am very happy I did!

Yes, it's not as easy to read as FA for step 1 but I personally like it more than MTB. I feel as if MTB is not... enough, even if I also go through Kaplan LN. But that's just my opinion.
