BRS Physiology is one of those review books that needs to be in your collection for the first two years. It provides an amazingly concise and relevant review of medical physiology in an organized manner. Each chapter has a question bank at the end to supplement and reinforce the concepts. Great review. Used this for my course in the first year and then again for Step 1 Reviewing. It's a must buy for those of you who like review books either for their summaries or just need more practice questions.

Best thing there is for those who want to review Physiology. Great explanations with review tests at each end of the chapter for that great integration. The last comprehensive test at the endo of the book it's great, makes you focus and integrate the basic concepts of Physiology.
2 weeks of reading, and you'll have a more complete comprehension.One of the best books in Physiology, straight to the point.

Great quick overview of Physio. Met my requirements and helped reinforce the topics discussed in my second-year medical school courses. Nice review for the boards, but only pick your 2 or 3 worst subjects from the BRS offerings so you don't get too overwhelmed. You will see these topics again!

BRS is a great review book to have along side your first 2 years of medical school. I have been using it with every system and it has been a great help. It organizes the most important physiology topics for each system and you can use it as a guide for your classes and for the board.

I bought this book to augment second year of medical school and to use for Step 1. It is written in a straightforward manner, and is a quick read. Also helps by simplifying most of the concepts to give you a base you can build on with your classes.

I use this book all the time. It is great at removing extraneous information and leaving in only the important information that you have to know for Step 1. It is really easy to understand, and works as a great adjunct to coursework and First Aid.

This is such a good review book. Its too the point and has great questions that focuses on key must-know concepts to do well in your course and take away key knowledge for boards. Its time effective, cost effective, and teaches the concepts.

Best quick review of physiology out there. Hits all key concepts and board relevant topics. I am a big fan of quiz type questions so the review questions at the end of the chapters make this book essential for getting ready for step 1.

What I find most interesting about Costanzo's physiology is her skill in sticking to the point and the text is very practical in its details. Everything is laid out as briefly as possible, but such great subsectional bullet points.

This review of physiology is an excellent summary of what a physiology course teaches is a whole semester (in other countries like Costa Rica in 4 months!). The writers of this book really did a good job. Congratulations!
