I was a little dissapointed when going through this book for USMLE step 1 review. Don't get me wrong, it is a really good review of embrology. It's concise, well written, and digestable, but thats just it. There are numerous details in this book that really just aren't important for step 1. With the exception of fertilization, cleavage and early stuff in development, the majority of this book is just icing on the cake. The explanations of clinically relevant material are very high yield and excellent, but I found that I already covered all the material while studying for pathology. Plus there aren't any questions at the end of the chapter to help you review. I found that First Aid was more than adequate for studying embrology and this book just really wasn't needed. I would only recommend using it if you are taking embrology in med school and need some answers. This book can be a great source to help you make an "A" in class, and it is much lighter than the parent BRS embrology, which can seem a little overwhelming. Just as a side note, the Board Review Series Embrology has the exact same material as this book. If you have one, don't get the other!

This book is ok to study for USMLE step 1, but not fantastic. There is not much background information or explanation, and the images are ok but not very good. I would have liked it to give a bit more information on some processes, a little more background and a bit more help to understand and memorize important subjects. It does give a lot of clinical information, but not in a way that makes it very easy to memorize.
So if I could choose again, I would go with another book. This is not a bad book, but not very good either.

This is much more concise than the new version. This little book helps you put the H.Y. facts of embryo together not just as a subject on its own but in conjunction to pathology. I would specially recommend the first 3 chapters to get a quick idea of embryo genesis and the cardio, respiratory, GI sections for quick kill on the congenital abnormalities that are extensively talked about in Pathology. I particularly recommend to read the latter chapters alongside with Goljan's Rapid Review Pathology.

While embryology may seem like a visual-spatial nightmare for most students, this text does a great job of simplifying everything you need to know into a concise and well written manual. Will you be an expert embryologist? Absolutely not. But for those of us just trying to check another board study check mark, this text leaves most feeling satisfied and prepared.

Arrived on-time, MINT condition. As these all are review books for the board exams and not reference books, I don't think it's worth it getting a new one, when you can get the same information, in mint condition for this price. 100% satisfied!

it's like 40 pages, super brief outlines, more of a pamphlet than a book.

In an attempt to make a succinct book, authors forgot about important things, instead they include a lot of information that is covered in pathology; it is the same in all books of this series . Do not spend your money in this.

Way too much detail, not needed for exam. Step 1 tests breadth of knowledge, not depth. First AID is sufficient.
