obviously it won't be super heavy on clinical correlates or anything, but that's a minor issue with a course like physiology. EVERYTHING relates clinically
there's a reason why all the M2s and M3s told me to get this book. now i understand.
- very concise and easy to understand - high yield stuff here people. High yield stuff.
- goes into perfect amount of depth for board study
- great for use as a reference tool to complement first aid
~ (hint: some first aid chapters do a sucky job on phys - take notes in your FA copy from BRS in these chapters)
- just as great for use as review tool when studying for classes
- one thing that is over looked is the size - it's relatively small and very easy to tote around
- organization is great
~ (both in terms of the actual way the material is presented and in terms of aesthetics - very visually pleasing)
- if you're looking for a lot of depth and detailed mechanisms, not your book
- could definitely use more figures.
- the practice questions are mostly first order and do not reflect the difficulty of board questions
~ (but that's what UWorld or kaplan qbank is for)
I really like this book and use it a lot for studying, both for boards and for classes. I'm taking my step 1 (USMLE) in about 4 months, so as I do board study, I like to refer to BRS phys for topics that I need refreshing on. It's great as a quick reference for when you need a memory jog on certain phys subjects. For example, when you get a qbank/Uworld question about the difference between a ventricular action potential and an SA nodal action potential and your like "omg, I forgot everything I ever knew about how the heart works," you can pull this thing out and easily find this (pg 70-71 btw).
I also find it very helpful for classes. I like to read through a new subject in BRS before we start that subject in class, or before I start studying for it.Read more ›

The best Physio review book. I also own constanzo's regular physio textbook, but prefer this one just because it's a lot more condensed.Published 8 months ago by km
