then I would recommend it, not as a primary review book however. It is basically the notes Goljan uses in class. and as opposed to his Saunders book, it is in outline form and very succinct. It is a very, very good resource to have to go back to later when you need to look up something quickly or to use as an abridged version of notes for prep. But it only has 2 sample tests with 50 questions each and a cd rom with some USMLE-type questions, but I would stil recomend getting Robins or Goljan's other question book for path. Even though I have his notes from school, this is what i take with me when I'm out of town since it's a durable book and much thinner than my notebooks.
If you put this book up on your site, I'll review it and a few others that I'm familiar with if you need another reviewer.
it's the other part of the Saunders Stars book he has. That's the only book of his I don't have, so I can't commit on it, I do have the Robin review question book on Idiopathic's (another OSU-COMer) advice.viper said:What is the goljan question book for path that you refer too?
If his Kaplan notes are the same basic notes that he uses for class, then yes, the Rapid Review is very, very similar.ssg said:So I guess the consensus is that Rapid Review is better than BRS in terms of concepts? What about Goljan's Lecture notes? I have his notes from the Kaplan course, its pretty thick. I was wondering if its pretty much the same as Rapid Review or is it worth getting the Rapid Review even with the lecture notes?
