I WISH I had used this book DURING my embryology course in med school (instead of waiting to use it for just review)! It would have been very helpful for exams. Most of the other High Yield books work best when used as a supplement to a more detailed book (or as a review after you've learned the material), but this one is still pretty detailed itself, without being overwhelming. It is a great review of the essential things you need to know for the USMLE. Good pictures, great clinical correlations, and good layout. It is up-to-date as well.

This book is much more concise than the revised edition. For being a low-yield subject on the boards, I would not waste my time on the expanded, newer version. This one is more than adequate.

This book is perfect for USMLE review! Dr. Dudek has very carefully chosen his words and diagrams in this concise review. It focuses on commonly tested concepts on the USMLE, especially with regard to congenital malformations. Highly recommended.

This book covers all the important info you need to know for Step 1. Its clinical scenarios are the gem of this book. It does however contain more than you need to know for this infrequently tested subject. But for any embryology book out there, this is the one.

This is much more concise than the new version. This little book helps you put the H.Y. facts of embryo together not just as a subject on its own but in conjunction to pathology. I would specially recommend the first 3 chapters to get a quick idea of embryo genesis and the cardio, respiratory, GI sections for quick kill on the congenital abnormalities that are extensively talked about in Pathology. I particularly recommend to read the latter chapters alongside with Goljan's Rapid Review Pathology.

I was a little dissapointed when going through this book for USMLE step 1 review. Don't get me wrong, it is a really good review of embrology. It's concise, well written, and digestable, but thats just it. There are numerous details in this book that really just aren't important for step 1. With the exception of fertilization, cleavage and early stuff in development, the majority of this book is just icing on the cake. The explanations of clinically relevant material are very high yield and excellent, but I found that I already covered all the material while studying for pathology. Plus there aren't any questions at the end of the chapter to help you review. I found that First Aid was more than adequate for studying embrology and this book just really wasn't needed. I would only recommend using it if you are taking embrology in med school and need some answers. This book can be a great source to help you make an "A" in class, and it is much lighter than the parent BRS embrology, which can seem a little overwhelming. Just as a side note, the Board Review Series Embrology has the exact same material as this book. If you have one, don't get the other!

If your medical school curriculum is weak on embryology (like mine), this is a great book to put all the pieces together. The chapters are short and easy to read, with lots of diagrams and pictures to help explain.

i read this book for usmle prep...it was pretty good...but had way too much information for usmle 1....i would reccomend using FA's embryo section as a guide...and read only sections in high yield that are represented in first aid(FA)...over all decent book...but overkill for usmle 1...
