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.

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.

The other reviewers covered the cards pretty well. I'd like to address the 70 question qbank included with the set.

The questions are poor quality. Some of them have more than one correct answer. They purport to be "board style" but many of them are "which statement is false" type questions, which are not used on the boards. Sometimes choices can be ruled out because they directly contradict something in the question stem.

The software is poor quality. In exam mode, you can only get feedback on the answer choice you selected. This is useless when the correct answer has the explanation and the incorrect one you selected only says "incorrect." It doesn't keep track of which questions you've seen, so expect repeats if you don't do it all in one 70 question block. You have to scroll through a tiny window to read the question and scroll through a second tiny window to read the feedback, which, again, is sometimes useless.

I used all my USMLEWorld micro questions and I was looking forward to supplementing them with these. It turned out to be a waste of time.

There's a lot to memorize and when needing a reference as to what is and isn't important, you can't go wrong with these

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.

I heard about these cards from a med student a year older than me who said that the way the information is presented on the cards is the best way to know micro for step 1. I use them in conjunction with my current micro class and find them very helpful so far for quick reviews of what I've just studied. As a stand alone product they probably aren't has helpful, but used with other resources they will be a good review for when intense board studying happens this summer for me. A great supplement, but not the primary source material for your learning.

These cards has a very good run-down of the different organisms encountered in clincal microbiology. They are detailed enough to understand but not too detailed to cause confusion. They must be supplemented with a textbook because just the cards alone are not enough to learn about the particular organism. I would like to mention that the flowcharts included on some of the organism cards are very good to show how to determine between 2 organisms and what tests are involved.
