This book is maybe one of the best BRS's. One of the end chapters has flow charts on how to narrow down symptoms to 1 or 2 bugs, and it works WONDERS. The parasitology part of the book is all mainly in one big table with a 2-3 line description of the parasite, bug, location, vector and PICTURE! The immuno part is quick, concise and VERY high yield.
Very well written book!

This book is an excellent review for both COMLEX and USMLE micro section. It fills a lot of the missing pieces that you may not see on First Aid. Although I think this book is a little overkill for boards, the advantage is that you will most likely be able to answer those "odd ball" questions thrown to you on the actual board exam. Also, Just as one of the earlier reviewers stated, one chapter has provided a very nice flow chart that served me well for quickly narrowing down my bugs on board based on symptoms like "bloody diarrhea with/without vomit...with/without fever...with/without PMN...etc...". There are four 50-questions exams at the very end that will really test how much you know and help prepare you well for board. Since micro is usually the second most high yield on board after path, I would recommend this book only if you either want a better grasp of micro or feel uncomfortable understanding thoroughly the micro section covered in first aid (which happened to me in the latter case). I will give this a 4 star rating only because there are some flaws in the answer keys for the exams in the back of book. Otherwise, I will recommend to anyone who wanna kill the micro section on boards.

This is an excellent review book for Step 1. It has some of the extra information and details that First Aid is missing and can be used to annotate First Aid for better overall preparedness for the exam (at least so I hope, as I'll be taking it in July). I think having this book as a quick reference for our medical microbiology course would have been helpful too. I didn't give it the full 5 stars because the index is a bit lacking, although the search option in the online full-text version does compensate for this somewhat, but if you're not near a computer it is definitely an inconvenience. As a busy parent who is crazy enough to tackle medical school with a family in tow, anything that takes more time than needed is an obstacle for me.

This is one of the better BRS reviews that I have used. Gives clever ways to remember groups of bacteria, parasites, etc.

Excellent book to read for review as well as during class. The kindle version is well formatted and the books are well organized. They do not have many pictures to help show or explain things. The USMLE First Aid Series does a good job with visual aids if you want those in your guide.
