    Anyone out there doing using both BRS and RR for Path? I went through BRS once but recently took a look at RR and felt there were some details lacking in BRS. Should I still stick to BRS or jump ship to RR now?

    I did both. There is some stuff in BRS not present in RR and vice versa. The only drawback to BRS is that it doesnt have pathophysiology.

    I am also using both for the reasons stated above. I figure it can't hurt to use both because people have done exceptionally well with both texts. Either one, you can't go wrong.

    I used BRS for class and switched to RR for boards. It is true that there is not complete overlap. I think that it may be more beneficial to add a book from a different subject instead, however.
