Well yes, you need Pathology and Microbiology and you should have at least a bit of clinical knowledge, i.e. be able to recognize the typical presentations of common (and not so common) diseases. Topics being stressed in
the US (more so than overseas) is everything molecular. You should start with a comprehensive review book (either my Made Ridiculously Simple book or the "First Aid") and go from there. It is important to study from US
books - many IMGs fail simply because they don't study the right materials. Obviously, if you study what they ask, you will achieve a high score!
