The concise, well-organized text helps students identify major pathological concepts deserving special emphasis

The concise, well-organized text helps students identify major pathological concepts deserving special emphasis. All questions include answers and full explanation sections.

This is a really good pathology book so far. I like how there are words that follow the diseases, and what I mean by. .

When I was studying for my step 1s, I was really confused about either studying the BRS pathology or sticking with Goljan. After taking the test, I would have to say that you should probably stick with this book instead. It is concise and it covers most of the things you need to know for the boards.

Alright med students of the world let me tell you about 1 of the billions of study books out there. This is a really good pathology book so far. I like how there are words that follow the diseases, and what I mean by that is that it is not just an outline book like Goljian or First Aid. There are also review questions that are nice but I don't think they quite match up with Robbins question book but none-the-less any question is better than no question.

So why and and how you should use this book:
-This is a great book to review or read ahead for class instead of trying to read Big Robbins or Baby Robbins (unless you have loads of time, want to be a pathologist or masochist).
-As I mentioned before there are more words than First aid and Goljian which is helpful to learn from instead of just reviewing.
-You know First Aid is going to have errors in it and this book is no exception but BRS has a better track record of having good detailed information that is correct.
-This book does not have a lot of labs and graphs to reference so don't expect to use this like you could Goljian for Pathophysiology.

When I was studying for my step 1s, I was really confused about either studying the BRS pathology or sticking with Goljan. After taking the test, I would have to say that you should probably stick with this book instead. It is concise and it covers most of the things you need to know for the boards. You can fill in the rest with USMLE qBank (which is a must).

Don't let others fool you into thinking that studying Goljan will actually raise your score. It will not. The book is good and it is comprehensive. But lets be honest with ourselves. Even if you read Goljan 10 times over, how much are you actually going to retain? The book is detailed and it is wonderful for reference. But for the purposes of the boards, BRS is enough.

Update: I got my score back and ended up getting 245/99. I read this book over twice and I honestly retained only 90% of the entire book. However, despite that BRS + Qbank = win. I know there are people on SDN saying that RR is the most godly book and that if you don't memorize it then you will never break 230. That is simply not true. To be honest, it doesn't really matter what resource you use. Just get one and stick to it. In my opinion the BRS is shorter and higher yield than other books and I will vouch for it.

BRS -> PERFECT MEDIUM BETWEEN FIRST-AID AND ROBINS

First just to make this relevant and have validity I'm a medical student that scored a 244 on step 1. Not the best score out there but 240+ is really what you should be aiming for to keep your options open. If you are like me you only attend the mandatory things which accumulates to ~8hrs of class a WEEK (beware because that goes to 10+hrs a DAY in 3rd year... the year when medical school starts...) and living the dream of being in your 20s and were not aware what step 1 was until midway through 2nd year. So you want only the high yield materials.

You need 2 things and BRS as a reference:
1) USMLEworld Qbank (I'd recommend all random questions in 46q blocks. Mix between timed and read answer after question mode) This is the best resource for your score PERIOD. I bought the 3month trial because i started studying 3 months before I had to take boards.
2) FirstAid - This is a must. Make sure to get the color version which started in 2012. Dedicate a week to read once in the beginning of 3rd year so your familiar with all the terms and reread 1 or 2 more times.
3) BRS PATH - In retrospect, I wish i would have read more of this. I read it for the more confusing path sections like repro. A section takes ~1-1.5 hr to complete and you are an expert. I looked through Goljan because people in my program wouldn't STFU about it but after glancing at it for a couple minutes I realized I just wasted ~$40.... LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE. I have an old edition of robbin's which pathologists love. It is a very solid book but very low yield. IMO Harrison's has a better more relevant path section. Again, grab color edition of BRS... black and white just makes you fall asleep for some reason.

After you finished 1 and 2 references and supplemented with BRS take a NBME exam... my program provided us with one exam. Take the newest one. If you go to bed at 10pm stay up until 3am when you think you would perform worst from being sleep deprived incase that happens on test day (which apparently it does to everyone because I've never heard of someone not giving this as an excuse even if they performed well on this exam). That score is very indicative in my experience. No need to take 5... if your like me in max student loans and have a balance on 4 credit cards you can spend your $$$ on something more useful like the new World of Warcraft expansion ;)

This was my strategy. There's no magic study strategy. You reap you sow. Since the first two years of medschool are like college undergrad,if you are doing it right, you are probably bored the majority of your time. So just put in 3-4 hours a day on weekdays to complete a block of qbank.

Good luck. Pick a test date and keep it.

*Remember there will be a lot of peers using performance enhancing stimulants. Do you need to take those to keep up? Of course NOT. You don't need 'em. And remember - leave the excuses/whining at home.
