I'm about to start MS2, and I know that if you are going to nail one class in med school, you nail path. So my question is, how do I do that? There are so many path books, reviews, etc. out there and I'm confused as to what approach I should take. My goals would be in the following priority order: 1. Prepare to ace path on the boards 3. Learn the most pertinent information for becoming a good physician. 2. Pass my path class (don't care about the score) I had a number of books in mind: 1. Robbins Pocket Companion 2. Robbins Atlas 3. Robbins Review 4. BRS Pathology 5. Goljan Rapid Review (I have the audio downloaded as well) My plan was to use Robbins Pocket Companion as my main "text" (Our school's required text is Rubin's... anyone know anything about that one?), along with my class notes, and use the Atlas alongside it. Then, do the questions from Robbins Review, and then on weekends go through Goljan's RR. Has anyone else tried a plan similar to this? I know everyone says BRS path is one of the best books ever for path review, but I'm not sure how I could incorporate it into my studying. Any tips, suggestions, experiences? I'm really excited about this class, and anything would be appreciated!
