What is better for physiology? Kaplan or BRS. I need to start but still confused :roll: Thanks.


I have done both, found both great sources. I actually read BRS first, and then read Kaplan. Some things in kaplan are really well explained and then there are some things in BRS that kaplan doesn't have, but i think as far as the boards are concerned, either one is good, whichever suits you. If you dont read kaplan, do questions at the end of those chapters thought, they are pretty good.


i would suggest that keep kaplan as make book from beginning till renal and acid base balance and add to it the BRS. Do neurophysiology, GIT nad endo from brs alone.


yes kaplan doesnt have any neurophysio so u need to do that from somewhere


wht about other systems??CVS, CELL, RESPIRATION??


tables and graphs in BRS r very good


i would suggest to do neurophysio, endo and GIT from BRS only while for all of the rest, combine BRS and kaplan keeping kaplan as main book


NMS Physiology is also good. Unfortunately, Neurophysiology is not of much help. Otherwise it's a good book.
Also read BRS. Quite good but Renal & Acid Base are better presented in NMS. Really!
