I bought the kindle version because it's $10 cheaper, and it works better than I expected. For every question there is a link that brings you directly to its answer, and for every answer there's the link to bring you back to the question. That's easier than flipping the paper books. Not to mention that the questions themselves are excellent companions to the FA book.

But still good source for questions to review for my exams first and second year. Use USMLE world for board style questions and step 1 prep.

I purchased the Kindle edition because it was cheaper and I could begin using it immediately. As a first year medical student I have been using these questions to help prepare me for exams and they provide great explanations and information about each question. I can't review on how well it would prepare me for the USMLE because I am not studying for that at this point, though the questions seem to be board-style to me. The kindle edition is great for quizzing because it is easy to get from question to answer with just a single click. My only problem with this book, and it may just be the electronic edition, is that the images are in black and white (the only reason I gave it a 4). There are some histology images that should have been in color and they have hindered my ability to answer the questions. Other than that I think this was worth the purchase.

I think this edition is outdated. Because the USMLE/COMLEX have gotten so much more clinical, First Aid has changed around their 2013 First Aid for the USMLE. And this Q & A study tool doesn't seem as though it matches well - the questions aren't what I expect them to be, don't match up with question bank questions well and quiz on very fine detail not presented in First Aid text. While I meet average scores on question banks, I seem to get the majority of these questions wrong and it is very defeating in studying for my COMLEX exam.

I don't care if you don't have a kindle -- they have an app for the pc/mac, ipads/phones, whatever.

The questions are good to make sure you have a basic understanding of the material -- ie perfect for class exams. You need to know the basics if you wish to succeed in the USMLE.

Anyways, the Kindle edition is great. It is super helpful to have the option to go back/forth between questions and answers! It's a bit reminiscent of like, firecracker, for example.
