Unless you like reading endless rivers of words, this book isn't for you.
Mohamed
I can't compare this (6th ed.) to previous editions, but can say that this book is a good overview of OB/Gyn.
Matt
Good source with a lot of information to get you through an OB/GYN rotation and its associated shelf exam.

I ordered this book during my Ob/gyn clerkship as a MS3. It reads like a textbook, and therefore requires a little bit of ramp-up time to get into, and a little more digging to find facts on the fly. So it's not really a book to carry with you on the wards for those 5-10 minute downtime periods, but it's a good read if you've got an hour or two to kill (plus it's physically too big for white coat pockets). I found it to be helpful in studying for the shelf, though it should be combined with other question-based resources (Pre-Test, Case Files, or UWorld) to round out the experience.

I did have a little bit of downtime during Labor and Delivery, and was able to power through about 25% of this book. I don't feel like that time was wasted, and would definitely recommend Blueprints for people looking for a narrative review without the nitty gritty of a true textbook.

I read this, First Aid for OB/GYN, and OB/GYN by Beckmann (textbook/required reading), and a couple other textbooks which I read selected topics for, for my rotation. I was most pleased with this book, and found it most helpful for the clerkship and EOR exam. I have read a couple other blueprints book and felt this was the most well done out of all of them. Most helpful were the Q&A at the end of each chapter which has been shown to improve test scores (having questions after each section).

The book is written in a very easy to read format. After I finished it I read the recommended textbook. Much of the information was mirrored, but less convoluted in this book. I felt this book was very well done. My preceptor also was impressed with my knowledge which I got a lot from this book.

I don't normally care to write reviews but I made an exception for this book because I saw it had several bad or sub-par reviews. IMO, this is a great book, better than many others out there, and I am reviewing it because I feel it deserves a better over all score.

For some reason the Blueprints series has gained a reputation for being too superficial and basic. However, many of the med students who believe this actually do not know half of the information I learned from this book. So I think it is just a popular thing to say - that these series are not so great - when the people saying it are rarely the sharpest tool in the shed, if you know what I mean.

I think this is a great book, and would recommend it as your first (but not only - no one book should be your only) read for your OB/GYN rotation. My one critique is that some of the practice questions were trivial or actually worded incorrectly. But anyone who takes a lot of practice tests knows that this is unavoidable. Overall this book is 5/5.

This is an AWESOME text for the OB GYN shelf. I felt like I had excellent working knowledge of pathology and physiology that allowed me to be confident going into the exam. Granted in order to finish the book, you need to be dedicated to getting your reading done in a timely manner. This paired with the ACOG questions that are topic specific are excellent prep for really understanding the material, because at the end of the day... that's what matters, future docs! ;)

Unless you like reading endless rivers of words, this book isn't for you. There's a lot of details that is simply not needed at the clerkship level. It's a very dry read with very few picture. I definitely don't recommend this for a 6 week clerkship. Go with Case files, kaplan and UWorld. Can add UWise if you have time.

Format: Paperback
I can't compare this (6th ed.) to previous editions, but can say that this book is a good overview of OB/Gyn. It definitely doesn't go in depth enough to be the sole review book for a med school clerkship or the shelf exam but it's a good place to start. As an aside, we were recommended not to use this book as many key topics were missing. I noticed that with the latest edition they are either included or expanded upon.

The abundance of minor mistakes can be distracting at times. Examples: a references to a figure that don't exist, an "orphaned" figure, images that are sometimes described incorrectly, a table that routinely use the less than symbol when it should be greater than, typos galore, and some occasional points that are described as being current therapy but aren't.

Also of note, it seems as though the questions at the end of the chapters weren't edited before being published. Sometimes question stems are missing which makes it impossible to answer a question such as, "What do you do now?" I noticed that with some chapters, the question stems were actually left as part of the answer explanations.

Nonetheless, the explanations are good overall as is the layout of the text. For the price, it's a good supplemental book for the OB/GYN clerkship and shelf exam.

For those of you who have a long block of time to sit and read, like I did on OB nights, this book is great. It is very detailed, has good questions at the end of each section, and is well organized. It has few pictures, so that may detract some ease of understanding some of the more difficult topics. This book prepared me well for the NBME shelf, but it is not a "read the day before" type of review book.
