Hey. Hope you achieve a great score.
you meant you used books like guyton, robbins? (How did you use them)
also how exactly did you annotate everything into FA. A lot of topics are missing.

Again wish you the best.
Thanx...
nopes... i didnt use guyton or robbins at all... n i dont think its mentioned anywhere in my review... but yes i did use goljan and its amazing book... about annotation... u hav to use ur judgement of which info is important and can be asked in questions... u can add sheets to first aid if u r cramped by space... but still b very choosy while annotating... good luck Happy-2

Oh that... I meant the extra book i used for each subject besides kaplan n goljan... like high yield for anatomy subsections, brs for physio, brs... Basically the idea is.. u hav to hav a standard book and one reference book to cover up the gaps in knowledge left after doing standard book...

I basically consolidated all important info into first aid n then revised it later... so cannot really advice u on this... but if u feel u r getting questions wrong in any topic, u can always go back n revise it up... :)
