    I've read every post i can find on reddit and SDN. The general theme i see is that EK psych is inadequate and that TPR is generally recommended over it. I wanted to get some additional opinions on EK vs TPR, and thoughts on if EK is lacking.

    I started using TPR but I found that they go in depth on terms not included in the AAMC guide. For Example : they discuss "Broadbent Filter Model of Selective Attention" and "Anne Treisman’s Attentuation Model". Neither are mentioned in the AAMC Guide. This makes me feel that TPR is way to detailed and unclear on what to know.

    Is using EK + Khan Academy videos sufficient, or may this be lacking? I would appreciate any advice, thanks!
