Best OMM Review Book I've Seen,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: OMT Review 3rd Edition (Paperback)
This book is the perfect OMM review book. It takes the most important concepts from OMM and organizes them in a neat and easy to digest package. And the best part is that if you need to review for COMLEX I or II you can breeze through this book in 1 weekend. The text is large and approachable, the images are simple and effective (though not colored or very artistically drawn), and the chapters are short and well organized. If I had bought this book during medical school I would have used it for classes instead of the suggested readings.
Each chapter is well organized. The chapters start with useful information, contain mnemonics in the margins, and include separate boxes for key points and concepts. Each chapter ends with 10-20 multiple choice questions to test your comprehension from the material you just read.
The book is organized the same way that OMM should be taught (in my opinion). It follows the musculoskeletal system. You learn about cervical spine, then thoracic, then lumber and so on. It all flows very nicely and it an easy read.
I would highly suggest you buy this book if you plan on reviewing for the COMLEX, you need a quick easy guide to OMM, or you want a great overview book for your OMM class.
