I'm using Pathoma for the sake of brevity; I have Goljan and consult it when Pathoma doesn't have something. I feel like Goljan integrates more pathophys with path, but there are too many bullet points and Pathoma puts things more succinctly.

if you have done goljan already i would advice using pathoma, but before doing it give a quick review for every corresponding chapter. i think only pathoma isn't enough for the whole pathology, because it majorly covers histopathology and pathologic anatomy. Goljan deals also with pathophys and many other concepts.

thank you dr nick....i really appreciate your help. you rock!!!!!:cool:
:)):)):)):))why do you think dr nick rocks?
you have already decided using pathoma and needs support which dr nick gave you:)):))
goljan is still GOLD when it comes to usmle...you can use pathoma if you are having problems understanding pathology BUT goljan rr and audio is still the way to go baby:)

What are you guys talking about! Of course Goljan better

Ask any AMG, ask any recent exam taker, they'll all swear by Goljan

to ditch or not to ditch golijan....that is the question:rolleyes:
Ditch it :D

to decide depending on this poll, it will need minimum a month to vote more than 50 people. so don't wait my friends go kill goljan + pathoma ... yes both :D

I use Pathoma and its amaaaazing !! Its soo good !! I believe its the best resource for pathology. Goljian is good also but it will take a lot of time to finish it and i have no time for spending one month for patho.. I want to finish patho and pharma in one month.. Do u think its possible??
