Customer Reviews

I really loved this flash cards!!
Carmen M.Torres Delgado
These cards contain a great summary of the most pertinent information (bolded script) for drugs that are most tested.
B. Samuel
It would not matter if the content was great if the cards are printed on poor quality paper.

I bought these cards to review the step 1s and they did a good job covering most of the high yield topics. If you supplement these cards with the USMLE Qbank (which 99% of the people do) then you will be 100% ready for the boards. Other cards that I've tried are overly detailed and frankly too much for the boards.

Other reviewers have said that these cards are not 100% comprehensive and that is true. But honestly you don't need a deck that has everything for the boards. Time is limited and memorizing every minuscule fact about drugs is very low yield.

Update: I used these cards for about 5 days total to study for the boards (these cards + qbank were my main/sole source of info on pharm) and I ended up getting 245/99 on the exam. Pharm isn't my strong point and frankly the subject is like memorizing a phone book. However, these cards are great for boards and made studying slightly easier.

Disclaimer: I have only used these cards for learning anti-microbial agents so far

What I like:
- Each card has a clinical case on the back to put things in context
- Cards are well organized into "mechanism of action", "Clinical Uses", "Side Effects", and "Other".
- Overview cards organize drugs into classes. For example, Antibacterial Agents are separated into "beta lactams, protein synthesis inhibitors, antimycobacterial, and other antibacterial.

What I don't like:
- The cards often seem to be missing key elements that I have had to look up in other sources and write onto my cards. For example, there is no mention that aminoglycosides are not absorbed orally and must be given by IV. This kind of missing information has happened a couple times, but not too often, so I am content to write it in on my own...better for learning anyways...
- At times, I found that the cards were too wordy. For example, why say "macrolides are effective against gram-positive cocci" when you can just say "gram-positive cocci" and get the same message across? Isn't that the point of flash cards?
- I would have preferred thicker cards...these are slightly flimsy.

On the whole, pretty decent, althought I don't have a different set of cards to compare to.

As a pharmacist, I find these flashcards highly relevant and succinct. For those studying for the pharmacy boards or USMLE, I suggest saving time by not making your own flashcards, but using a "base" set (I like LANGE Katzung's Pharmacology), then adding or deleting cards, highlighting and marking as necessary. In the end, it's all about the repetition and DOING CASES, not wasting time making flash cards and reading multiple sources to "guess" what's going to be on the exam. Just get the cards and memorize and repeat !

PRO: The information contained on the cards is wonderful. Many courses (as well as the USMLE and PANCE) present questions in the clinical vignette form, the same format as these "flash cards." The 11 sections are divided into logical sets, providing pleasant continuity for studying.

CON: I have purchased cheap flash cards before. Really cheap Medical Terminology, Vis-Ed Cards (Set of 1000). None of these have, however, been of lower physical quality than Lange Pharmacology Flash Cards. Other reviewers have stated that McGraw-Hill essentially cut a textbook into smaller bits and called them flash cards. This is not entirely true. It is, in actuality, somewhere between single-ply toilet paper (Thetford MARINESOFT TISSUE-1PLY-4PAK 20804 (Image for Reference) and newspaper.

Good for what they are but i shouldn't have purchased these. They aren't worth the money. Too many sources is bad for me. All you need in pharm class is Katzung's review book which has to the point explanations for MOAs and drug uses and has awesome questions with explanations. For pharm for Step 1- UWorld qbank and FA are all you need. Don't waste your money, time, and resources on these. It's not enough bang for your time.

They have all the most important information and key information is in bold. Each year's exam is different, but mine had pretty easy pharm so these were more than sufficient.

First Aid gave these a bad review for the material they are printed on, but I like that they are essential on card-stock bc you can write on them and add whatever additional information you want.

These are better than Brenner or BRS pharm cards, I have all three. These are the most comprehensive and best for studying the boards. Give you all the important information, but not too much. great for class and most importantly the best for step 1.

These are fantastic for USMLE studying. I currently own the Brenner cards and Lange cards. I tried the Brenner cards for about 10 hours total and found them generally worthless. The Lange ones are great specifically because they're vignette-based. In other words, when you're trying to remember what chloramphenicol does for example, you'll be like "oh yeah, that's the baby that presented with greyish skin." --> grey baby syndrome. That's just an example. I would use FA + Lange + online QBanks to prepare for pharm on step-1.
