This book is a must have along side "First Aid General Principles" and Fist Aid USMLE step 1.

Being an MS2 trying to effectively study for the boards, you'll find sometimes it takes many books to explain what you are not understanding UNTIL now! I literally only need this book for anatomy,embryology,physiology,pathology and pharmacology (relevant biochem,micro etc are found where needed). The book is written wonderfully, with a conversationalist flow. If you are like me and have trouble just reading lists/bullets of information you HAVE to know, it has been easier to read full chapters of this book compared to all the lists found in First Aid then go quickly review first aid. BUT thank goodness it flows WITH first aid as well. I love the nice side notes which feature key facts or "tie ins"to other chapters or clinical correlations. It help keeps the information feeling less overwhelming while making sure you get the big picture. In fact, there is plenty extra that you can easily annotate into first aid yet not rewrite a book or make you wonder if you are filling first aid with "lower yield facts".As far as organization, I find it much clearer than first aid but it tries to mimic first aid as much as possible.I love how every major pathology has an intro, presentation,diagnosis, treatment and prognosis subheading. I have found myself looking at cases and remembering the presentation or the drug just from reading it displayed that way (vs first aid that separates anatomy,physiology,path and pharm for the same syndrome). It made my qbank review be more efficient. In fact,I really wish I had bought this book earlier and studied it as an adjunct to all my classes (once you get to organ systems)so I would recommend this for first years as well. I think the earlier the better.

This book is a MUST BUY when studying for my Step 1! I do not think that I would have been able to score a 230+ without this book. It's basically First Aid Step 1 but with paragraphs, more vibrant pictures, and tables. If you are having a hard time with First Aid Step 1 then this is the book for you.

Honestly, I could only go through First Aid Step 1 (2013) if I read it along with watching the Doctors In Training (DIT) videos. This book enabled me to cover the material without the videos.

Bought this textbook for my girlfriends brother in med school and he says it has helped him a lot in understanding the trickier concepts in class. Overall he says its a VERY well presented textbook.

Currently studying for boards and this is a must for preparation.
I would use it conjunction with First Aid though as it is "dense" (compared to First Aid). I only wish I would have known about this during first or through 2nd year. I would highly suggest annotating this during your coursework.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book offers detailed explanations that the regular First Aid Step 1 book does not include. Thus, it offers more explanations/figures and is therefore helpful. I am giving this three stars instead of five since most medical school notes and texts already have these details and more. So I found this book more of a companion to the regular First Aid rather than an independent text.
