4.0 out of 5 stars Great information, but a little too much November 20, 2013
By Hillary
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
I liked these cards a lot, but they are difficult to study from as flash cards because there is so much information on each card. I would use them more as a text book than flash cards.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent September 1, 2013
By CE
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
I bought these cards mainly for Step 1 and I went through all of them once. I thought they were helpful, especially the trees at the beginning of every section that show you how things are divided. These review cards had good information, some of which I thought was a little extra for the boards. If you learned micro well during first year, then the combination of First Aid and UWorld should be sufficient to prepare for Step 1 microbiology. Overall these cards are decent but I would not buy them again. Also one thing to keep in mind is that the information on these cards may be a little too "clinical" for first year microbiology classes. The info is mainly geared towards Step 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Yield Review June 7, 2013
By Ellen

Great NCs for high yield level 1 review. I much preferred using these NCs to the Micro Made Ridiculously Easy book. The flow charts at the beginning of each section were great for the big picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely organized, follow First Aid May 26, 2013
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
These cards have been very helpful in my Step 1 preparation. They really only cover the important pathogens, pretty much in line with what First Aid covers.

They're nicely organized, with a road map before each group - a card containing a flow chart with all the RNA viruses before the actual RNA virus cards, for example.

They have a clinical vignette on one side with a picture, usually an animation of what you would see on culture. Better description of the bug, associated disease(s), treatment, etc. on the back.

Overall I really like these.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Yield August 28, 2012
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
These cards are simply great and are a significant improvement over the previous edition. Each card presents a concise summary of the organism and the diseases associated with it. Color micrographs of disease features are especially helpful for board review or medical school microbiology. I found these to be especially useful in conjunction with Medical Microbiology Made Ridiculously Simple.
