Goljan is best utilized when you are doing your basic sciences course in your med school and you opt this book to review with your main course books .....

so for you KLN except pathology ..... pathoma ....UsmleRx and UW qbanks ....remember doing as many questions is the key for you .....
thanks for thorough reply, it will really help me, I was good in basic sciences in school, but I am away from medical studies for quite a long time and regaining that inertia will be time consuming, I will do my best what ever I can for Patho as it is a big cake in box, Will do pathoma instead of Goljan and some time I fear that I might extend my eligibility, but honestly I don't want to extend if I finish pathoma and all others that u suggested I will stick to my schedule.
thank you once again for informative reply,,,God bless you
