Are you guys kidding? I go the school at which Kandel lectures and few people read the complete text, although many people will read bits and pieces and all the diagrams that correspond to the lecture schedule.

BRS Neuro is pretty good at keeping you focused on the important stuff. I aced the class using BRS neuro and a good atlas for cross-sections of the spinal cord, brainstem, medulla etc. We also had Kandel as a required text but no one used it. We used The Human Brain by Nolte. I read Nolte only when BRS wasn't enough detail-wise.
