Great Companion To First Aid,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: USMLE Step 1 Secrets, 3e (Paperback)
This book is a great companion to the First Aid for several reasons. First, it organizes high yield basic science principles more specifically and efficiently than the First Aid. Second, it elaborates and further explains high yield topics that are just merely listed and not explained in detail in the First Aid. What I noticed about USMLE Step 1 secrets, was that it was able to explain important details about high yield Step 1 Topics without going off on a tangent and explaining unnecessary information not frequently tested on the USMLE. Another attribute of this text is that it virtually gives a clinical vignette to every pathology or subject being discussed. This strategy is effective in helping you to recall important details that you are studying. As a result this book will help you not only to perform better on your Qbanks, but on the actual exam itself as well. My advice? Whenever you come across a topic in the First Aid that you are fuzzy on, or lack a foundation on, look up the same topic in this book. If you follow this along with a Qbank, you should be able to perform well on the Step. Best of luck to everyone!
