Format: Paperback
I'm using this book alongside FA2013, Goljan, Pathoma, etc. I think the first thing you'd like to know is how does it compare to first aid 2013. From a quick glance it seems quite similar, but as you look closer some of the charts are different.

For example, "Sex Chromosome Disorders" on page 524 of first aid 2013 only includes Klinefelter, Turner, and Double Y males, but if you look in Step Up's page 226, it has a chart that not only has those 3, but also XXX syndrome, Fragile X syndrome, Prader Willi syndrome, and Angelman Syndrome, which clearly are all disorders originating from the sex chromosomes. However, there is less information on each disorder in Step up, as the First Aid's section is clearly trying to focus on the chromosomal abnormalities that are more relevant to reproduction. I can't say that this example can be generalized to all sections in the books.

Another first impression it seems like Step Up is more full of tables and charts, with true quick review points (i forgot to mention there are "Quick Hits", which are a little similar to the side notes that Goljan has in the sides of RR pathology. There are also some very nice flowcharts that aren't in the first aid (ie. working up a patient who has amenorrhea), that could be useful.

I'll update this review as I continue to use the book and let you know how i really feel about it after i finish the boards.

Update 3/21: This book has bugs chart at the end in alphabetical order which makes it good for a quick lookup, but in general micro seems quite weak in this book for structured pure micro learning compared to first aid. instead, relevant bugs are named in the relevant systems (ie. thoracic aortic dissection caused by 3' syphilis causing syphilis aortitis).

Pros: a very good review book
Cons: Kindle version lacks access to supplemental material. Low-res scanned tables despite claim of being optimized for larger screens. Many tables rotated at 90 degrees, which is fine on a Kindle cuz you could just rotate the device, not so on a laptop with a Kindle app which doesn't as of yet support rotating pages.

Disappointed from Jenkins and DIT team. This book is hard to read. It has no biochemistry nor efficient physiology. I would like to return this book. Book is full of errata

Bought it from BN and man i am still surprised that Really EIGHT Authors were involved in this mess .Idiom in title fits absolutely correct here .I am failed to understand what was point of writing this book as its worst then FA ( Gold Standard) and dust compared to Secret series.Too little info and then just random figures on Lipid Cycle and metabolism .Few and far between charts that are crying for errata (All DM drugs don`t cause hypoglycemia ). Avoid like bad relationship .You been warned, rest up to you .
