This book has 2 parts: the Essential section and the Performance test section.
The Essential section has >200 questions with more than one correct answer followed by a 'You should Know' paragraph that has comparative and contrasting info to distinguish between the diseases /incorrect-correct answers. This was worth everything !!!
The Performance section has >300 questions with one correct answer to put you in the test mode w/a reference page that leads you back to the essential section- an additional review- if it didn't sink in the first time!
The CD is broken down into the fields in which we will be tested- excellent format.
The APPENDIX at the back wraps things up nicely.
Use this book and you'll pass---- I DID !!
I am currently a PA student in the middle of the didactic year and an admitted MEDIOCRE test taker. I believe test taking is a SKILL which can be improved upon. Looking for ways to improve, I sought out various PANCE REVIEWS, like Kaplan and Princeton to improve my test-taking strategies (a pre-requisite in PA school where testing is de rigueur) as well as preparation for the PANCE. Searching for something more, I found out a classmate was using the Davis PA Exam Review now in its 2nd Ed. After further review, my advice is simply-PUT IT AT THE TOP of your list. Did I just yell?? This book is an absolute GEM. I have used other reviews and NONE COMPARE to the unique learning system in this book. The Davis Review takes a multi-dimensional approach to thinking about and MASTERING the concepts the PANCE tests. Most books use outdated, recycled questions- not good. In Davis's book, you actually GET INSIDE THE MIND of a former TEST WRITER FOR PANCE. Did I forget to mention the author, Dr. Diamond, was on the PANCE test-writing committee and personally crafted questions for the PANCE? The book has two parts which make it different. The ESSENTIALS section contains question and answers which LINK all clinical physiological systems seamlessly by providing more than one correct answer to a particular question. The format serves as a REVIEW of material and gets you thinking as a CLINICIAN would in practice. In the appendix, these key SUMMARIES are revisited in detail and represent material most likely tested by the PANCE. After gaining a better understanding of concept and questions, you can head to the PERFORMANCE section and test yourself.Read more ›
