So, it's not a terrible book, but with so many 5 star resources out there (and limited time), I would NOT get this book again.
With that disclaimer, this book is a good way to reinforce some topics from the First Aid for Step 1, especially when the monotonous reading of that text becomes boring and your brain gets saturated. I am a huge believer, in that as medical students instead of diversifying our portfolio (which we don't have since all of our money went to medical school :)), we should be diversifying our methods of studying and to reinforce topics in FIRST AID, this would be the way to do it. However, from my understanding the information in First Aid is not enough to score well on your boards, although it may be sufficient to pass. This book, provides very little extra information outside of the First Aid for Step 1, although a few percentage of questions do an excellent job of integrating concepts from different clinical sciences and forcing you to apply what you learned from FA rather than just memorizing it.
As other people have mentioned, and I will reiterate here, it is in no way a substitute for Kaplan QBank, USMLE world, etc. and in my opinion primarily serves a reinforcement of topics and facts presented in First Aid. In addition, there are a few minor mistakes and some direct contradictions with other texts.
Hope this helpful, good luck to everyone taking the Step 1.
