Format: Paperback
This book makes a great addition to your arsenal of medical board prep books. It's from the same authors of the Lange pharmacology review; a book rated high in the board prep bible: "First Aid for the USMLE Step 1". This book is more concise, however, and very easy to read. It gives you a good framework from which to build your knowledge base of pharmacology. It doesn't just provide lists of drugs nor does it drone on with minute details. Instead it explains the mechanisms of each drug class, providing most of the important drugs as well as their clinical indications, contraindications and toxicities. It does tend to shy away from offering mneumonics, however, but sometimes other people's mneumonics can be far-fetched and cumbersome in the learning process. I recommend the book as a starting point in getting a grip on the huge amount of material inherent in the study of medical pharmacology. It also works great as a last minute high-yield review of pharm before your exam.

if you already have katzung, there's no need for this book. sure you can use it for the shelves but first aid and the high yield drugs in the back of katzung is much better alternative. But if u can do all three, good.For the step 1 first aid is more than adequate,i used first aid for the boards after i found out that katzung was too detailed. i ended up with a score of 229/95.

WOW.. this is definately one of the best books I have seen to review pharmacology. I have already tried a mock USMLE test and found that I was lacking in the pharmacology section , and went to study from the major LANGE text , and covered the hypertension drugs in five really long chapters, then I read the same drugs from this book, and I pretty much got the same amount of info. This book is not a referrance to study from , but it absolutely the best memory jogger I have seen yet for this subject. It is clear , well edited , pointing out the important things you need to keep in mind, and is nice and thin so that it could be used to cram from only a few days before the exam. Those of you considering sitting the step 1 exam, trust me you will need this book, it will save you a lot of work, reading , and anxiety !

This is a great little rview for the Boards- its more detailed than the First Aid but a lot shorter than the Kaplan Pharm Review Book. You would notice that these are the same authors from the major pharm books that are out there. I am a fan of Trevor's teaching techniques so if you are familiar with his style than this is a great addition. However, this is not a book you want if you are starting out trying to learn pharm- in that sense you want the details that are required for you in medical classes- I would go with Lippincott.

This book is well written and flows very well. It is clear and explains the most important aspects of the drugs; it is not to be used alone though. This book is a review after you have read a full book on Pharmacology. It is a good study guide and helps you remember important key aspects of certain drugs.
