The bottom line with this book is that it contains one block of 50 questions per organ system. So if you are doing an organ systme approach to studying for the Board then this could be helpful. However, if you are studying in a subject based format, this would be a completely waste of your money. Furthemore the questions in this book are selected from the First Aid Rx question bank, which means why buy the book if the 1 month subscription for the question bank is worth the same. besides the question bank has much better explanations than the book- as they correlate with the current version of the First Aid Step i book.

As of this review, I'm almost done with the USMLE world qBank and have taken 3 NBME full length exams. The questions in this book are a bit spotty, some pretty unrealistic. If you buy it, the first thing you have to do it get the "errata" to update your book. The answer explanations aren't as informative as one might like. I agree with the other reviewer that the author rushed the publication of this book. I have to ask why there are so many errors and bizarre wording of questions if 30 medical students and faculty edited this book.

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.

i like the book. Answer explanations are clear. But there are few mistakes in some areas. For example, question 41 in respiratory section, residual volume ie supposed to be A , not D, it needs to be corrected.

It could be a complementary source for practicing subjective categorized questions.
My rating for this product would be 3 out of 5.

It is a helpful book if you are studying to take the test. Great way to present the Q&A's so you get familiar with the way they present the test.
