    simple

    none of the above. first aid pharm section is gold. memorize it and whatever you don't see enough detail on just write in some notes. i used first aid and did qbank, whatever questions i had in q bank that were not in the pharm section i added notes then just reviewd first aid with my notes. all those books are way too long when you could use the extra time for path/phys

    the heaviest tested part of my exam was pharm....FA and qbank were not enough.....

    heaviest

    the heaviest tested section on everyones exam was the stuff they didn't know, mine was biochem...hehe i had alot of pharm questions and FA and q bank was enough. pharm at auc is not good so we need to study the class orange book to pass the tests but also the katzung or lippincot as an adjunct while taking the class...i think if you do that then FA and q bank is enough...

    no, i was counting questions.....i had a significantly higher number of pharm, molecular bio, and immuno.....pharm i was pretty comfortable with.....molecular was a strong point for me.....i had some path, not nearly as much as i thought there would be and barely any phys.....i definitely had well over 100 pharm questions

    isn't that about right?

    i thought kaplan saod 20-30% pharm....so isn;t it about right? i probably had about 70-90 pure pharm and 10 biochem but those biochem qs made it seem like all of my qs were nothing but biochem...i still don;t know how i ended in higher performance in biochem, or pharm actually

    well over 100.....but they also claim around 50% path.....which definitely was not the case for me.....my fiancee had so little pharm on her exam she said she basically wasted time studying it
