Editorial Reviews

Review

"Each chapter is packed with information. As well as the bullet-point formatted text, the authors frequently use non-fussy, two-tone tables to provide more in-depth information on single topics...In conclusion, this book is a 'high-yield', 'rapid review' of pathology packed with information in a well-presented, concise format. I would recommend it to final year students or junior doctors as a revision tool." The Bulletin, October 2010

Disclaimer- This is about the 1st Edition**

I am a 4th year medical student now, and I started using this book during my second year of medical school. I think that this was the best book I have used in medical school. It is accurate, and includes everything and anything you need to know. It integrates every subject into path too- like Micro, and Pharm, and important physiology. The best part is that it explains things (especially when used with his lectures!). For example, the hematology is great, in that it explains why lab values are low/high, based on path, so you do not have to memorize the material. Sure, a common complaint is that there is too much info, which is especially true for the heme section, but who cares, your going to be a doctor. You never know what a patient may have, or what a board question will ask. This book is why I succeeded into 3rd and 4th year. It will make your shelf exams easier, and of course, step 1 easier! Why? You will understand medicine, and not just memorize it to forget it! Thus, when you use this book, your not just studying for step 1, but, your also learning info for every shelf exam, and every board exam you will ever take. Believe it or not, its good for PIMP questions on the wards! I can't tell you how many ridiculous questions I knew, even when residents didnt know the answer, because of this book. Every high-yield fact, and buzz-word, is in this book. I was never brilliant or anything, ie) average MCAT, but I sure did very well on all my boards and shelf exams. There are great color photos in this book too. Some of these you will see on...well...hint hint hint. Another great part of this book- sure, it has a lot of great step 1 info, but it is also great clinically.

I used my BRS through the first quarter and a half and decided to give Goljian a try after numerous recommendations from classmates. I wish (x 1000) I had used Goljian instead from the beginning. To put it simply, Goljian is a happy medium between Robbins and BRS in that Robbins has good details to help you understand the material while BRS for the most part simply tells you what you see in diseases without explaining reasons and the processes (for the most part....so it does provide brief explanations at times). However, in my opinion Goljian's true strong point is that many times it explains concepts the way say your 'smart' friend would on concepts. Have you ever been confused about a topic by reading text books or after lectures only to have your friend explain the concept in 2 minutes and you end up thinking "Why couldn't others explain it like this?" I think BRS is designed to be a different beast. It's designed to be a highlights of diseases so that if you can recall the background knowledge/processes of diseases by reading what's provided in BRS, it's a good book. Goljian explains things much more so that even without reading Robbins (not all the time) you can really understand what is going on with diseases and why/how they happen. Again, nothing beats Robbins in terms of thoroughness. But, view Goljian as that 'smart' friend who is good at explaining things. Again, I really wish I would have used it rather than BRS from the beginning of my M2 year.

This is a great book. It is helpful for Pathology class and for Step 1. The only problem is that the Student Consult website doesnt have what the book promises it does. The book says that SC contains over 400 questions but as of today (9/22), none of them are on the site. I tried contacting student consult twice and Dr. Goljan to ask about this but no one got back to me.

It is still a great book and I recommend it for anyone in medical school, but until SC puts up the promised 400+ problems, it gets four stars from me.

Edit: The questions are now up! The book gets 5 starts from me! The questions are very useful and seem like the type of stuff we're expected to know for Step 1.

Overall, I must agree that this is one of the absolute best sources for studing for USMLE step 1, however, this book is anything but rapid! Before studying for step one, I had been through each chapter 3-4 times each and it still took me 6 days to go over the book while studying for the boards. In other words, don't be fooled by the title, it is unrelenting in its bullet point format. If you only have 3 days to study path for step 1 and didn't look at this book during second year of medical school, it would be a BAD idea to think that you can pick it up and make it work for you right before you take the test. For first timers to this book, plan on taking approximately 10 days or so to make it through ONCE. It is that dense. Also keep in mind that neither the book nor the online content gives questions at the end of every chapter. Although some chapters do have online questions, most of the time you will find yourself finishing the book before you get to the comprehensive tests at the end. To remedy these problems, I recommend picking up Robbins review of pathology, a question book. Read rapid review and then practice the questions in Robbins. If you know this book well, you should have no trouble doing fairly well in Robbins. Overall, this is a book to pick up early in second year. Plan on spending an enormous amount of effort learning the material in this book. Keep in mind, however, it is anything but rapid.
