Update 11/16/2013: Errata is available online.

Update: The Qbank is now available online.

I had the previous edition of this book and there were many sections where the explanation was not clear enough. Upon google searching, I discovered others were posting questions about the same passages on forums and asking for its clarification. This edition has resolved the ones I checked.

As others have stated, the pages total have increased and so has the number of images. Online you have access to the book as well and can download all the images of the book in one zip file. This book is almost perfect, except some minor mistakes with incorrect referencing of images and tables as if they weren't updated etc (I found 2 in the respo chapter so far). Also binding is a bit weak and it's cracking a bit from the inside, but that could be because I am using it so much.

Pro:
Numbers of pages increased.
More explanations/clarifications than before.
Online access to book (searchable), images, qbank, and errata.

Con:
A few minor typos.

Conclusion: This edition is a MUST, even if you had a previous one.

I have both the 3rd edition revised reprint and the 4th edition so this review it's mainly intended to highlight the differences between the two.

They're both excellent books and if you've ever read Goljan, you know what to expect. As for the differences:
1. The book is longer. By about ~150-200 pages. That may not be a good thing depending on the type of person you are and the review of pathology you want. But I find it a bit more comprehensive in explaining concepts.

What is in the additional pages? Most of the addition from what I can tell and according to Goljan's acknowledgments in the cover is "more high-yeild information and photographs than in previous editions." The pictures you'll notice right off the bat. There are several pictures in all corners better displaying things I had to google or reference in the past. Not really a game changer, but it makes the book feel more complete.

2. Most notable, the little blurbs he has an the sides that summarize high-yeild concepts have been increased by 1.5-2x fold. It's really good if you're like myself and go back to review those concepts to make sure you got what you wanted from chapter (and your professors in year 1 tested from those blurbs). But at the same time, they become too cluttered and in a way, they subtract rather than add.

Would I recommend an upgrade? Up to your style really. I own Harrison's and read that to reference things. I prefer a more dense and complete book so I really like the changes in 4th edition of this book. If you prefer shorter reviews and limited in time, maybe the 3rd is better for you? But then again, you'd be missing out on the pictures that highlight some of the pathology.

The only thing I'm sad about was that I had taken notes from watching relevant Pathoma videos during first year into Goljan's 3rd edition. But I was planning to rewatch the videos anyhow, so it's another way to review the material.

Huge improvement over the 3rd edition. 200 pages more than the 3rd edition, but more readable in my opinion, yes I bought the 3rd edition last year, and I had to shell out another $35 for this edition, but what is $35 to one of the most important Step 1 resources? I'm glad I got it.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Kindle version is not good. I don't know what the hard-copy is like, but in this digital version, the formatting for the outline is all off! For example, after the roman numerals (I, II, III, IV), the next subset (A, B, C, D...) are supposed to be on the next line AND be indented. There is NO INDENTATION for the next line! So (I) and (A) and (1) and (a) are ALL ON THE SAME MARGIN. This is awful because you have to backtrack to see which heading you're under. With all the numbers and letters corresponding to a new line being pretty much on the same left margin, it's difficult to see which header you're under. I need this book now, which is why I bought the digital version, but it is very difficult for me to follow - almost unreadable. I think I am going to return it and get a hard copy. NOT WORTH THE PRICE.

There is no doubt that this is a comprehensive and easy-to-read book. Probably the best patho book in the market.
BUT!!! Not suitable for Step 1 at all. Too much in detail and too long. Seriously toooooooooo much!!!!!
You can't retain all the info in the book no matter how many times you read the book. Trust me.
This book should only be used as a reference, not a review book. Don't make this mistake.

This is one of the most difficult books to finish in terms of time requirement. However, once you finish a chaper in Goljan, you'll know that topic better than you ever did.

It is a great book for the basics of pathology if it is combined with kaplan pathology although it is twice informative than kaplan but kaplan is easy to read initially to put a base and complete the chapter.
It is 2014 edition ships faster than expected as a pre-order book.
I will give the publisher and the author 5 stars and they actually worth more.
Lovely book and shipment so 5+ stars to Lovely Amazon
