1.0 out of 5 stars Somebody forgot to proofread... May 20, 2011
By Lisa
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
I have only looked at about 20 of these cards so far, but there are so many typos on them that I have put them all back in the box and do not intend to trust my studying to them. For instance, ONE SINGLE CARD (Psychiatry Card 4) spells the drug metoclopramide three different ways. Not only did I see several misspellings, but even drug facts were incorrect. I want the cards to help me learn things I don't know, so if I can't trust them to be correct on what I do know, I would be afraid of what errors I would not even realize were there. Save your money and find a more reliable set of flash cards. These cards are advertised as "Fully revised and updated"...I think maybe they should give it another go.

2.0 out of 5 stars Maybe good for Step 2/3, but not ideal for Step 1 May 31, 2012
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
I just got these for step 1 review because they get an "A" rating in the back of First Aid, but I'm disappointed. They include a number of drugs that I've never heard of before (never covered in my med school pharm class, not mentioned in first aid, not tested by the U-World Q-bank) so I'm doubtful that they will be useful on Step 1. They leave out many other drugs included in First Aid. Also, the main focus of most of the cards is the indications for use, rather than mechanism or toxicity. That may make them useful for step 2, but less so for step 1, which wants you to know MOA and toxicity in detail but generally just wants you to know the disease that they treat (rather than what stage of the disease to use them in, and which drugs provide mortality benefit, etc). As other reviewers have mentioned, they have a lot of type-os, which doesn't exactly inspire confidence. Many drugs have different pertinent information spread between different cards (toxicity on one, MOA on another) and often the information is contradictory. For instance, two different cards mention Carbemazepine, but the 3 toxicities that they list for it are completely different. This makes studying very frustrating!

In short, I may keep these around for step 2 and 3 study, but I think there are probably more appropriate flashcard sets if you are looking to learn pharmacology for step 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars I finally feel GOOD about Pharm! May 20, 2012
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
Let me just start by saying that Pharmacology has consistently been my weakest subject. I've always had a VERY hard time keeping names straight, side effects together, and just... generally really struggle with the subject. After taking a Pharm shelf exam I realized that I REALLY needed help with this- and one of my classmates recommended I pick these cards up.

I can finally say: I feel like I'm understanding Pharmacology. My score on the USMLE Word Q bank Pharmacology has shot up DRAMATICALLY since I started these cards. They break everything down in 'Need to know' format using clinical vignettes that are just long enough to get the points across.

I LOVE these cards. Thanks to them, I'm feeling confident about my board exam.... in two days.

On a side note- There are a few typos but they really didn't subtract from the information.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed August 22, 2011
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
I got these because everyone said the pharm class at our school is terrible, just memorize flashcards. Unfortunately, I should have asked which flashcards, because these are not the ones you want to use for class/Step I. The flashcards themselves are really flimsy, super-thin, slippery paper that's difficult to handle and hard to put back into the box. Each individual flash card is huge with large type - I would have preferred something more portable and durable like 3x5 index card size and thickness with a smaller font. Also the cards each have a sample case, but seem skimpy on mechanism/biochemical details. I do like that the information is broken up/color-coded by subject.

My recommendation is to look elsewhere as I'm already trying to find a different set of flashcards for the boards.

By don
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
after reading all the reviews here I thought this flash card is good, the flash card is big and it defeats the purpose. did not help me in retention it confused me even more

avoid buying this, there are so many fake reviews here.

just stick to FA, Lange cards are much better than this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what they claim to be! May 26, 2013
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
The cards say that they help you for Step 1, 2, 3 but they dont really at least for step one. They dont give you any information about classification and about MOA. Be aware that these cards do not have wnough info for Step 1.

2.0 out of 5 stars kinda sloppy April 12, 2013
Format:Cards
I bought these because they were rated very highly in First Aid. Unfortunately, they contain numerous typos. Also, many of the drug mechanisms included are definitely not detailed enough to be very useful for Step 1. Finally, many of the highlighted drug toxicities/side-effects are low yield, or just patently false (trastuzumab is certainly cardiotoxic!).
