4.0 out of 5 stars Good Overview May 23, 2012
By dk DO
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It covers probably 75-80% of what you might need for the FM shelf, but some of the sections just aren't detailed enough. The questions are the best part of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for quick reference August 6, 2012
By BinYong
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good book for quickly looking up treatment guidelines for the more common issues seen in family medicine. It's basically a book of facts, so a little difficult just to read and remember all the info. It seems high-yield to me for studying, but I recommend getting a supplemental book or two to help you go through the topics. Blueprints is pretty dry reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome for family medicine shelves July 11, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great little book. This book packs a big punch, highlighting how patients are most likely to present, their H&P, labs to run and treatment. Each chapter is one or two pages, but its all high yield. There are 1 or two little practice tests at the end to help gauge your understanding. Great little resource.

3.0 out of 5 stars Minimally used this resource April 20, 2014
By LolaMom
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Compared to other resources to study for the family medicine shelf, this one is so-so. Some areas too dense and others needing more coverage, making it not comprehensive and not work as well as some of the other available resources

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for Family Medicine Rotation February 7, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm currently on my family medicine rotation and have used this almost daily to study from or as a quick reference. It is concise and well written as a good reference should be.

If you are looking for a case based book this won't be of much use to you. The book is broken up into symptoms. If you want to look up something on hypertension, you turn to that chapter. It lists common diagnoses/complaints, differentials, basic pathophysiology, treatments and background information for every single one. It's by no means a comprehensive reference but it's got everything you absolutely must know about a given subject.

My only complaint is the size; this book could be made a bit thicker and scaled down to smaller dimensions for a white coat pocket, exponentially increasing it's utility. Right now it's about the size of an iPad and really only suited for my bag which isn't always in easy reach.
