Doody's Book Review Service, Sally Ling, MD, University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine --
"This is a very well put together 'notebook' containing essential information that medical students need to acquire during internal medicine rotations. It is presented in an appealing format that is effective for learning.
"The book was written to enable students to study more efficiently for their clerkships, shelf exams, and boards. It is intended to consolidate important information which otherwise may need to be extracted from multiple sources.
"The authors envision students using this book beginning in their second year of medical school. It will be particularly helpful during third and fourth year internal medicine clerkships.
"All standard subspecialty areas with the exception of psychiatry and women's health are covered. Important clinical points are highlighted in the margins. Tables, illustrations, and clinical vignettes are effectively used.
"This well edited 'notebook' concisely provides pertinent and reliable information on internal medicine related topics. It will be extremely useful during internal medicine clerkships, as well as for preparation for the shelf exam and boards."--Four-Star Review from Doody's Book Review Service (Weighted Numerical Score: 92)

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The book claims a student committee and provided feedback to improve the 4th edition, but it does not provide any specifics. It might be worth it to hold onto third edition. I will update the review as I see changes.
As far as physical quality, pages feel cheaper than third edition.
I have now read about half the book and there are a few updated I have noticed.
1) They added a few lines about the new oral anticoagulants (i.e. apixaban)
2) BP guidelines have been updated with JNC 8
other mistakes have not been fixed like pneumonia severity index
I am updating my review from 3 to 4/5
I used this book + UWorld Q bank to study for the shelf and felt adequately prepared.
As far as the product quality itself--the book came in great shape without any mark-ups. It arrived quickly and was packaged well.
I'm super happy with the seller as well because they were actually able to get to me sooner than expected.
HOWEVER, my only qualm is that my new book came a little beat up on the edges. But that's more of a problem with the shipping than anything.
1-love the side notes in the book listing what study gave us x reason to why we do things. Its great for the ward pimping sessions.
2- well layed out, enough detail content wise without being overwhelming.
3- easy to read
