Is BRS Pathology all you really need to know for path for Step I? That is, if I memorized this book would I be good to go for the path q's? Someone in my school from previous years suggested we read Robbins from beginning to end but I think this is crazy, not only would I not retain anything, I would be neglecting other subjects.

Yup, I agree with you. BRS path is pretty much all you need to know in path for step I purposes. In addition to reading it cover to cover, I also used it as a book to look stuff up in while I was studying. I don't think that I touched Robbins during my step I studying, except maybe to look up pictures of stuff which I don't recall being too helpful for the actual test. It was a nice break from those review books though, it's a very nicely written/illustrated book.

It's somehwat off the original post, but thanks so much for the link. I had no idea Dr. Robbins went to MIT and I feel bad for cursing a fellow alum. (Of course, I used Baby Robbins so I was actually cursing someone else :) )
