When people say FA doesn't have enough behavioral science and to supplement with BRS, is this mostly for the ethical stuff or for everything? BRS has a lot of psych stuff so I'm wondering if people use BRS for that stuff as well (FA seems to be pretty solid for psych, but i dunno for sure)
I've read FA and am just about finished with USMLE Rx, but my psych, behavioral and biostats need tweaking (as these are/were my weaker areas in Rx), so after I finish the QBank, I'm going to spend a solid week just reading BRS Behavioral and HY Biostats. FA is definitely not enough in these areas.
I've already looked through bits and pieces of the BRS, and I can tell that some of the stuff is obviously low yield, so my focus will be to merely skim most of it and, at the least, just answer the 500 questions that are in it. The same will go for HY Biostats; there are definitely some LY areas which will just be skimmed, but the HY sections and the 78 questions will get done.
The bottom line is that we've already heard/read from lots of people on SDN (or wherever) that, in the end, FA and UWorld are "all we need to know." Maybe that's true in the sense that much of the info in other resources ultimately converges on those two, but if you're like me, who has BS and BS as weaker areas, it wouldn't hurt to spend additional time topping up with BRS behavioral and HY Biostats. I've seriously thought about the potential utility of these two books, and I reasoned that it just can't hurt
to go through them.
