It varies by person. You have no guarantee of what you will get, if you sample enough people you will see how much this is true. John Doe may get a lot of CV pathology and Mary may get a lot of neuro pathology and someone else may get a lot of immuno. So you never know. Besides, there's always the uncertainty with that phenomenon where it seems like test takers seem to remember more the sections they had to struggle with and so their perception of how much of each subject was on the exam is perhaps not too accurate. So not to discourage you, but there is no certain way to know. Traditionally, path, pathphys, pharm, phys and micro are the big ones. How much of each, with all due respect, it's a crapshoot.

If you do a search on this forum you will see how the testimonies of various past test takers corroborates just that. GL.

The amount of space dedicated to a subject in First Aid is about proportional to how much you'll see of it.

One exception is cell/molecular biology, which is underrepresented in FA.
