I am a second year medical student who purchased these cards as a way to stay fresh on topics that we covered during first year and to begin studying for the Step I exam. I wanted a way to actively review material as opposed to sitting down and reading Robbins over and over again, since I have found that I don't retain much information like this.

The cards are laminated and come in a nice looking sturdy box, which is sitting on my bathroom counter. (Hey, you review when you've got time...) There are about 10ish cards per chapter of Robbins Pathologic Basis of Disease 8th ed, and each card has references to the latest editions of big and medium Robbins (Pathologic Basis of Disease and Basic Pathology). Right now I am only on chapter 3 - I do several every day - but so far I am very impressed. Each card has 2 sides, each with a full color picture (histology or gross), clinical vignette, and then 2-3 short answer follow up questions related to the picture. One side is labeled "side A" and should be done first, because side B is usually related to side A and builds on the vignette. For example, on side A there is a picture of a dissected aorta and a vignette hinting at Marfan's, and questions will ask you what the mutation is, what the histopathology would look like, etc. Then on side B, a CT showing blood in the mediastinum, and it asks you what happened, where in the layers of the vessel the defect is, and how the pathology is related to clinical presentation.

The only thing that is a little annoying is that since the answers to the short answer questions are on the opposite side, when you are looking at side A, you can see the answers for side B below.

Let me cut to the chase here. These are great cards, no doubt about it. However when it comes to the USMLE, CONSOLIDATE YOUR RESOURCES. In other words, there are inevitably many resources out there that will help you for the boards, but FA + QBanks + Goljan are all you really need. These could be good as a minor adjunct during second-year, but for boards purposes, use your time wisely. The amount of time you'd spend on these cards is not worth it compared to that which could be spent additionally having read FA AGAIN. The only cards that are worth your time are the Sanjiv Microcards and the Lange pharm cards. These latter two are unequivocally superior to most other resources. But forget the Robbins cards. They're good for intrinsic gain, but of lesser value for USMLE prep.

The Robbins flashcards were great for reviewing for step 1. They provide a nice "break" from book studying, when you know you still need to study but can't stomach reading anymore. Big plus: there are lots of images (CT, MRI, X-ray) in the cards, better preparing you for images on step1. These cards are a useful addition as a review material, not intended as a primary learning source. It's a little awkward having the anwser for the back side of the card on the front and vice versa, but it does allow for twice as many questions. Great for keeping material fresh in your head.

Good Points:
* these cards do cover a range of topics and correspond with the pathology textbook
* there are images on every card and challenging questions

Bad Points
*The worst problem is that there are errors in the question answers; e.g. card 15.6A answer references values that are simply not demonstrated by the question --blatently wrong, and question 15.4B confuses the definition of charcot-leyden crystals with that of curschmann spirals. It is as if they are creating these cards by drawing from a database that is faulty rather than reading them themselves!
*There is no index, so unless you ahve a Robbins text, you will have no idea which section to utilize
*As stated before, the cards are double-sided with the answer for the question underneath the new question on the opposite side of the card; that actually doesn't bother me as much as the generaly jumbled and crammed appearance of the cards
*Imagine my shock to read card 15.11A, which references a "hypothetical" high speed accident in the Place de l'Alma tunnel involving a 37 year old woman -very tacky in my opinion (a clear reference to Princess Diana without any acknowledgement of her)
*these cards don't have holes punched in the corner like Netter cards, so you can't put a ring through them if you don't punch them yourself --if you punch them you will lose part of the image and/or text

Conclusion
* The Robbins brand is so much better than these cards. This must have been a project that was assigned to an intern, because the quality is just terrible. Better than nothing? Well, not if you can't even rely on the information in the cards.I wish I had just bought the atlas:(

This is perfect for USMLE STEP 1 ,it is full of pictures that you might see on exam and with arrows that points to a particular area and full explanation .It makes it easy to memorize and learn .I think it is a must have for the exam along with goljan pathology which does not have many pictures it makes a complete course for pathology. each card is in a case manner so it makes it interesting and not boring and easier to learn .and the answer is on the other side so you wont see .you will have time to think while not seeing the answer .Very useful and altogether great .
