Members don't see this ad.
A friend gave them to me, so I already have them, so if you respond you can disregard the price of the books. Anyway, after reading some posts about them, I am a little hesitant to commit to reading them. I feel like I would be a good candidate to use them because I will probably be doing a lot of learning (instead of reviewing) when I start studying.

Anyone use (or plan to use) them? How long does it take to get through them?

What's your problem man, why didn't you learn the information the first time around? Are you a slacker or something? I guess you aren't a gunner like myself.:hardy:

If you know your stuff, not a bunch of time (at least for me). I 've been breaking it up, but I can easily get through 50 pages +/- in about 1-2 hours.

If you are learning it for the first time, I have no clue what book, if any, is going to be "easy".

I used'em. I only went outside those books for pharm (1st Aid) and antimicrobials (Micro made ridiculously simple.) I had 4 wks to study and outlined a schedule for each topic. Some took longer than I thought (e.g. biochem, neuro) while some topics took less time than anticipated (I finished renal in a 1/2 day.) But I got through all of the home-study books in that time, they worked well for me.

Cool...Thanks.

I am just trying to plan a schedule with plenty of time to do questions also. I was hoping I could get through those books in 3 weeks or so.
