Kaplan Notes versus High Yield Series
 
Guys I was going through both sets of books... and I personally found that High yield series is far better than Kaplan notes in terms of the matter it contains... e.g Genetics, behavioral science, neuroanatomy etc. whatever subject I see in high yield seems better than Kaplan, I think its may be because of the video lectures and Kaplan institute that its more famous...

I agree. Kaplan may be overrated in some circumstances. but I prefer it because its more directional and I love the USMLE style questions at the back of each chapter. However I did add Goljan path rapid review to my Kaplan path because Kaplan path didn't seem enough. and about high yield, I only kinda liked the behavioral science book. the others seemed a little short, no? :notsure:
