As a current owner of First Aid 2010 (which was used as an accessory, alongside my basic sciences), I purchased the 2011 edition in order to stay up to date. However, this edition is virtualy one and the same as the 2010 edition, with the exception of the following:

- The text is in darker print, hence sharper on the eyes and more legible.
- A few of the dedicated NOTES pages have been collectively moved from the end of certain chapters to the very end of the book. As a result, some sections have fewer pages, or begin at different page numbers, as indicated by the index.

Other than that, it's still a great source for Step 1. Although this edition is cheaper than the 2010 (at the time of this writing at least), I suppose it's somewhat a releif that this edition remains unchanged. For the current 2010 edition owners, there's no update necessary, and nothing new to revise! I hope this offers some advice to anyone unsure as to whether they should update to this new edition. Thank you and God bless!

I really wanted an electronic copy, so I purchased the kindle version to read on my computer. Unfortunately, the formatting is altered such that some of the sections are unreadable or nonsensical (tables appear as lists so there's no way of knowing what items are meant to aligned). Additionally, figures are so small that labels are hard to read (increasing font size/zoom makes no difference). If you buy this - stick to the print version!

First of all, First Aid is the gold standard for Step 1 review. Memorize all of First Aid and I'll bet you'll get a 250 or above on your Step 1. Second, this edition took care of those 6 pages of errata from the 2010 version. So unless you feel like going through those 6 pages of errata on the First Aid website and making a ton of changes, I suggest buying the 2011 version. I know there will be a list of errata for this version, as Doctors in Training has already put together a preliminary list, but it is a much smaller list than the one from 2010.

A lot of people say that First Aid is not detailed enough. People say that you can't do well with First Aid alone and you have to use other materials along with it if you want a good score. Along with U-World Questions, the only study aid I used was First Aid and I got a 241 on Step 1 so...in my opinion, First Aid is plenty detailed to get you a good score assuming you know it cover to cover (more or less).

This book along with a Q bank (USMLERx, Kaplan, UWorld, etc.) should be the cornerstone of any good step-I preparation. It contains essentially everything you need to know boiled down to the bare bones. FA will refresh what you learned in class and a Q bank will test that knowledge/expose weaknesses, then you can add to FA to clarify weak points and make it personalized to your preparation needs.

This is the primary source of information for the boards. It is THE book to study from and it is THE book you ought to write notes from class into to prepare for the boards.

The 2011 edition is similar to 2010 with lots and lots of corrections from the 2010 edition. Also some diseases were dropped and some were added. For example in 2010 they mentioned sheehan's disease but in 2011 they took it out and added another disease in it's place.

There is simply no other book that comes close to First Aid for the USMLE Step 1. There is a reason why everyone uses this book. It covers all the essentials with just enough detail - not too much and not too little. If you are like me, you will only have a month or so to prepare. You need to be confident that you have in your hands something that's going to make a difference. With this, you don't have to worry about missing something or getting bogged down in the nitty-gritty. First Aid is exactly what you need.

I think the reason FA is so popular is because most people don't even bother looking at other resources. I strongly suggest you atleast take a look at the MedEssentials book from Kaplan. I had been annotating my FA for most of second year and two weeks before the test I found a copy of MedEssentials in our library. All my notes were already in Medessentials in nice organized charts with important things bolded. The difference in the neuroscience sections is night and day. The only section I thought FA does a better job with is the Hematology Oncology. There were several things that were on my actual Step 1 that were bolded in Medessentials and I strongly suggest you take a look. If I were to do it again I think Rapid Review Pathology and Medessentials are the best resources.
