    If that's your goal QBank + FA should be sufficient for your entire prep plan, including those subjects. Perhaps you could add another book for path, but even that is probably not necessary for a 217.

    this is great to know. I have BRS Path and BRS Phys memorized > 90% already. My FA is heavily annotated from other books too. I have completed qbank > 80%, have taken NBME test 1 (206) and plan in the next 2 weeks to only read 1 subject per day of First Aid in the morning, read my notes, then re-run through all the qbank q's in one day. Then I'll take one more NBME exam and hopefully cycling through the material 2x this way (Path and Pathophys qbank will probably take me 3 days though), I should expect to pass I hope.

    I started hating the word "Step I" a long time ago. but I heard a quote by Joe Namath..."when you win, nothing hurts."

    "success in the end ecclipses failure along the way."

    or my fav:

    "Do or do not, there is no try." (Yoda)

    Things will be fine when I am on an island sipping my alcoholic drink out of the coconut with the little umbrella and I have 3 honeys by my side enjoying a sunset while being massaged by 2 of them and having the 3rd one fan me with one of those giant feather fans.

    I stand by my statements. I edited nothing...maybe a little grammatical typo just because I know that these posts are being graded and I want to get good grades now so I can make sure I get in a good residency and don't end up living in a van down by the river.
