I introduce to you my secret for summarizing the notoriously verbose and tedious lectures (obviously copied and pasted from uptodate), identifying key points that make acing med school exams such a habit that scoring an 88% becomes so pathetic that you'll find tears of disappointment quietly trickling down your face - but wipe them away fast and smile because that's simply UNPROFESSIONAL, and 'rocking out with my brain out' during rotations. Put me on the spot - I dare you Dr. Attending [middle name "Dream-crusher-attempter"] (but I still love/obsess/want to be you and it's so obvious)
Do yourself a favor and purchase this book, then highlight the poop out of it with every highlighter color you own (you know you have at least 5 different colors) so it gains 10lbs of neon and then you can bring it to Ultra music festival and blend right in.
HOWEVER, the book ends up being almost unusable due to the poor quality of the binding on these books! Seriously, if you plan on using it to death like most medical students, the worst thing that can happen is you open it up on the first day and find that there is a huge seam in the binding glue that progressively gets worse and worse the more you use it. There are now about 40 pages in the renal section of my copy that are falling out. I keep adding more glue but it is a losing battle. Classmates of mine ended up taking their poorly-bound 2014 editions to Fedex Office to get the book re-bound with a spiral binding.
If I were you, I would recommend going to a physical bookstore to look for a copy of this book that has a complete, intact binding without any problems. I use Amazon for everything but you can't look at the binding to make sure you are not getting a lemon before buying off Amazon
ETA: OK one more thing about FA that makes it a more difficult to use. The organization of the book is strange at times.
For example, in the Neurology chapter, you have the typical subsections, starting with embryo, then moving on to anatomy/physio, then path, then finishing with pharm. But the editors of the book don't stick to those divisions! Say you want to look up Parkinson's? It's in the anatomy/physio section. What about Alzheimer's? Flip back to path. OK now let's find Huntington's. Go back to anatomy/physio. The organization makes no sense.
