Editorial Reviews

Review

A+  "A comprehensive source for key concepts in pathology, presented in a bulleted outline format with many high-yield tables and color figures. Features detailed explanations of disease mechanisms. Integrates concepts across disciplines with a strong clinical orientation. Lengthy, so best if started early with coursework. Includes access to online Qbank." First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 2012

"Each chapter is packed with information. As well as the bullet-point formatted text, the authors frequently use non-fussy, two-tone tables to provide more in-depth information on single topics...In conclusion, this book is a 'high-yield', 'rapid review' of pathology packed with information in a well-presented, concise format. I would recommend it to final year students or junior doctors as a revision tool." The Bulletin, October 2010 (review of previous edition)

This is excellent book for preparing to USMLE Step 1!!!
Nelly
This book is in outline format, easy to follow, and covers most topics reviewed in our classes.
Student
Very condensed version of pathology that goes well with Dr. Goljan's audio lectures.

Personally, I have found Goljan's review texts much easier to read than BRS. I actually stay engaged while reading it. If you listen to his audio lectures you can tell he is very passionate and involved in teaching pathology, and this comes across in Rapid Review.

This text in many ways follows the same information as First Aid, but with more wordage. If you study this text early, and then First Aid before Step 1, you will find that you already know a good chunk of First Aid. Because Rapid Review goes into more detail, it is a good text to start early. I do not recommend this book if you feel you are short of time in studying for Step 1 since it is more verbose. Sometimes Rapid Review seems like it is also preparing you for Step 2. It is all useful information but it is important to realize this isn't the best high-yield cram right before Step 1 resource out there.

Honestly my only criticism is that this is not comprehensive enough. You will need First Aid on top of this. Even for Pathology, there are a few First Aid facts not in here. Nonetheless, after reading this cover to cover, reading First Aid, and doing USMLE World qbank I went from 220 to 260 over 3 months, and I definitely feel that Rapid Review is part of that response. It is a good book.

Again, read this book early in your studying.

Pros:

Detailed

Cons:

Not very engaging

I am a huge fan of the illicit Goljan audio. I think what makes the audio so great is that Dr. Goljan is an engaging lecturer who peppers his talks with anecdotes and makes the content interesting. I bought this book hoping that it would provide a format that allowed for very high yield learning that could hold my attention. I found though, that each section is very dense and hard to read in the outline format. I now mostly just read first aid, listen to the audio, and leave this book at home.

I would not recommend this book for someone looking only for high yield facts, or for those who need a more narrative style of writing.

I know that there are many competitors these days with RR but if the way you learn is by truly understanding the mechanisms and theory then this is your book (you know you are because once you learn something because it is taught well, you will understand it and won't easily forget it). If you are more the associations/mnemonics quick-fix with multiple repetition + doing tons of qbanks type of learner then you might have more success elsewhere.

This is an excellent book for coursework, and good reference for the boards.

But it is overkill, and full of low yield material.
No one has time for it.

Stick to First Aid and question banks. If you are lacking concepts in pathology run through the pathoma vids, or maybe goljan's audio. Worst comes to worst go throught kaplan lecture notes once to get the gist of underlying concepts and MOVE ON to first aid and qbanks.

Master a few things.
Don't major in the minors.

Good luck. You'll do great. Believe.

This is one of the best resources you can use for Step 1 prep! On one hand the book is long (some students say it is best to read the chapters along side your course material throughout the year - so you are familiar with the book when it comes time to cram for the boards), on the other hand this book is fantastically concise when you think about all of the material that it's covering (pathology, relevant microbiology, '1st 2nd and 3rd most commons' by age group and immune status). If you have time to add Rapid Review Path to your study schedule it's well worth it!

Great book that reviews not only pathology but other clinically/board relevant information. As other reviews state, Goljan tries to help you understand concepts not memorize them. Highly recommended.
