5) has excellent diagrams, graphs and tables to help reinforce the concepts

My only critique is that the questions presented in here are to easy when compared with the questions on the NBME shelf exam (does not ask enough management / what is the next best step type questions).
I came back to edit this review after completing my OB/GYN Clerkship and Shelf exam. This book is great for building a foundation to understand women's health issues BUT the questions contained at the end of the book are NOT sufficient to do well on the shelf exam. I recommend ALSO purchasing a question book and doing as many questions as you can.
It says the majority of vulvar cancers occur in pre-menopausal women (it's not, most are over 70; the gyn-onc specialist at my school pimped me on this and I got it wrong b/c of this stupid book; look at the emedicine article if you need confirmation). It also says pessaries are used for incontinence (they are only used extrememly rarely, yet this book devotes a whole section to this use, it was another pimping question that I looked like a fool from this book).
In short, good format, bad content. Get the kaplan notes, they're better.
The book also has important words in bold print. This is very helpful when studying to draw the eye in for a closer look. There is also a practice exam in the back of the book which was an excellent review before the exam. The practice exam provides detailed explanations to each question.
