That's what I am using. I think you can probably use either and be alright as long as you are using uworld along with it, of course I still have to take my test. Maybe someone else can chime in.

Can anyone else comment on this? Are the Kaplan lecture notes, the same as the Videos, just written out?

I thought they were great. Not too much info, not to little, very high yield. Skip the preventative med section, though... too many updates, not current.

Oh and they are not same as videos. The videos sometimes have a little more or little less depending on lecturer. The two are awesome together.

for IM the videos were definitely a whole lot better than the notes.

For surgery you can do without the videos though the Pestana videos are quite good.
