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.Read more ›
* these cards do cover a range of topics and correspond with the pathology textbook
* there are images on every card and challenging questions
*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
* 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:(

Unlike "Review of Pathology", questions also feature normal lab values together with those of the presented case.
