    Ok, Paws is coming up on her board exam next June and I keep hearing about these Goljan tapes, but I don't hear anything about where to get them. Even classmates get all vague when I ask them where they got their tapes, "oh, a friend gave them to me ..." Ok, I obviously have the wrong kinds of friends, people who like me, are completely clueless about this stuff.

    So, do people really swear by this guy and are these tapes worth it? I found this google site: http://outofoffice.ytmnd.com/shop/view_product.php?product=18

    Any good? I am really out of the loop I guess. :(

    Does Paws always talk about herself in the 3rd person?

    go to doctok.com and you can download them for free in mp3 format, you may have to convert them if you want to put it on an ipod

    Sometimes I do. :)

    Thanks guys for the tips. Yesterday one of my classmates said he got them on Ebay for aboutm $10 so that sounds like the best thing. Altho I am going to check out the free site ...

    Just keep in mind that the ones you buy from Ebay are bootlegs, and the sellers probably downloaded them for free from the same site listed above.

    All audio recordings from Goljan are bootlegs.

    Wow, I did the ebay thing and got my cd's yesterday in the mail. $2.00 for the tapes and like, 10.00 for shipping. :rolleyes: Whatever, when I looked at the postage it was 0.60 and the 'tapes' are cd's. I don't care I guess because for 12.00 I have my own bootleg copies of the material.

    It's a shame that this guy can't get the copyright benefits of this. The cd's were just copies burned onto officedepot cd's. As for the free site, I tried to register and log in but it kept throwing me off or saying something was missing from my information, even when I put everything in. So I said, forget that and I just done the ebay thing because I could't stand the computer glitches with the doctalk website.

    Thanks again guys for the tips!

    ebay users do this because ebay takes a percentage of the final sale price. so if you sold something for $1 and inflated the shipping cost to $10, you still get $11, but you only pay ebay a percentage of the $1 'price' instead of the real $10 price and $1 shipping.

    Don't forget the $0.60 shipping doesn't cover the cost of the mailer.

    To get the goljan audio plus notes, email: [email protected]

    she emailed them directly into my YAHOO account. Very reliable and FAST(like two days)! Highly recommended.

    Is there a "table of contents" of sorts for the audios? Like a checklist of topics discussed per track? He veers wildly off-course and its hard to keep a count.

    Does Dr SarahSmith charge for the material? how much?

    My ebay material is working out pretty well, and the lectures are well described. I am happy with what I got, and for $12.00 it is ok. Dr G is good for beginning review and I am anotating my FA and BRS path/phys as I go.

    drsarahsmith asked for a $12 paypal transfer fee and I got everything within 48 hrs. I'm more than happy with the notes and audio. She was also really upfront and honest in her dealings with me.

    I'd also recommend webprep, especially for path with Dr. B. After listening to Dr. G for the umpteenth time, it's nice to have a change :)

    Is there a 2005 version of Dr. G's audio?

    My buddy and I have been doing goljan audio for the last month or so, and having just finished up renal, i swear by goljan tapes. Not only is it good path, it's good basics of everything. he integrates biochem, pharm, bunch of physiology, all using clinical side of things, which is kinda how boards are going to be. And he explains everything very well. My buddy's got his Rapid review path book also, and he swears by that completely. I'm about to buy that also--sayanora Kaplan path; buenas dias, dr. G path
    cheers

    ps. be aware that he refers to his figures/slides in the audio but the slides are nowhere to be found--they are copy righted and so far i haven't come across it anywhere on the net, which leads me to believe that those are about as inaccessible as a remote control somewhere in the skin folds of a very obese pt.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but for $30 anybody can get the highest yield slides that Goljan mentions in his bootleg audios... They're in his Rapid Review book.
    And if you want ALL of his slides that he mentioned, they're on the CD that comes with the book... according to Dr. Goljan himself.
    He even told his OTHER students, at the recent Kaplan course, not to worry about slides because you can pretty much answer the question without even looking at the slide.

    Book's slides and the CD's slides are more than enough (and all that's in his audio lectures).He told his Kaplan students that all the pics used in his lectures are on the book and cd.
    Anyhow, more than that would be overkill.

    OSUdoc, the goljan lectures sound a bit dated.

    How much new material does he go into when he runs the prep anew in recent years?

    He updates them every couple of years. He is currently writing a new Rapid Review pathology book, which he has been giving to us for class notes.

    I'm sure he will use this new material for spring reviews.

    Does anyone else feel that Dr G is a bit well, uh ... hard to listen to after a while? I am just on the last lectures and I feel like I just can't take another snort or chuckle from him. He also sounds really angry and freaked out sometimes. I think his earlier lectures were ok, but by the time you get to day five he is way out there.

    His material is good, but I feel burnt out after a while. Also, the Kaplan guys are similar. Some of them don't speak English very well ("mouses" instead of "mice") and their verbal tics are tiring. I don't use the lectures because of that.

    should we get the RRP new edition, or just use the old one? Any marked difference b/t the two?

    Yes. The 2006 edition will have 200 color images added, and 100 pages of text added.

    Maybe you shouldn't buy hardware that forces you to use a closed proprietary audio format. My ipod (which I got for free from the bank for opening a new account) plays mp3s just fine. You just need to run a small utility to update the database on the hardware once you upload the mp3s. It takes less than 2 seconds. Oh, and itunes sucks.
