Book Description

June 4, 2007 0781764750 978-0781764759 Fifth

Completely revised by new authors, this Fifth Edition presents 100 patient cases designed specifically to prepare students for clinical vignettes on the USMLE Step 1. Each case proceeds from chief complaint through diagnostic workup and treatment and includes buzzwords in history taking, physical examination, laboratory tests, imaging, and pathology.

This edition's cases give greater emphasis to pathogenesis, epidemiology, differential diagnosis, management, and complications and include radiologic images, photographs, tables, and algorithms. A new two-page format encourages students to read the case presentation and formulate an initial diagnosis before turning the page for the answer. The book ends with twenty all-new board-format questions and answers.

5.0 out of 5 stars USMLE January 20, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Let me just cut to the chase. I'm an assiduous step-1 studier and I own pretty much every resource from FA, BRS, Goljan, QBooks, QBanks, Microcards, Lange pharm cards, many of of the HYs and many of the DejaReviews. Underground Clinical Vignettes - Anatomy was FANTASTIC. It's an incredibly affable read and takes about 5 hours to finish (~10 to appreciate). It covers the CLINICALLY relevant anatomy that shows up on the exam. For example, a lump over the buttocks in a new born --> petit triangle hernia, then it gives you the boundaries (iliac crest inferiorly, anterior aspect of latissimus dorsi posteriorly and posterior aspect of external oblique muscle anteriorly). And that's just one example. The USMLE is all vignettes, and people who score well do so because they know key words and things to look for, not just because they have mere shelf knowledge. I believe this book will have earned me at least 3 or 4 additional points on the exam. Read it once, then before the exam, give it another half hour review --> twice total.

Anatomy has been tested more and more recently, this is a wise purchase especially if you're weaker in the subjects, but there are definitely some very low-yield cases presented.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really nice and to the point October 2, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I decided to give this a really high rating because I felt it was to the point, helpful, and really efficient. I used this to study for my shelf exam and this was extremely helpful. I plan on using this for step 1 once the time comes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super little book. September 28, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a keeper for your pocket or over your car visor for impromptu phone calls asking for assistance!
This is a really good refresher or mental wake up for possible anatomy related case study or just plain old refresher details.
Worth every penny.
