This is an excellent book for getting your attendings questions right, but it isn't going to help you for the shelf exam. It doesn't give clinical vignettes and doesn't introduce principles of managing conditions. Most of the surgery shelf exam has to do with managing post operative complications or how to manage a surgical patient as a medical intern. With that said, this book gives general information that a beginner needs to know ranging from where the surgeon stands and how to tie knots to how to classify orthopedic fractures. It is a good pocket book, but if you only have one source to choose to pass the shelf, leave this one at the store.

I found the OR to be an almost laughable game once I started reading Recall. The attendings would ask the exact questions in Recall in almost every case with very few exceptions. Knowing what case you are about go into and taking the 10 mins or so to read the relevant chapter or section in Recall made answering those questions very easy.

I never tried to read Recall from cover to cover. Doing so would be painfully difficult as it is truly just a list of high yield facts with very little interpretation or explanation.

Recall is organized around procedures / diagnosis and as such is of limited use as a reference for expanding a differential diagnosis in a case write up.

It is, however, an absolutely invaluable tool for surviving the OR.

I agree with previous reviews that this book should be a supplemental book not your primary tool for learning all that you need to know in surgery. At a minimum you should aim to get through all of the info in this book (minus the info in the surgical specialty section) during you rotation, but this book alone may not be enough to do well on shelf.

While this book is fairly thick, it has many of the common testing and clinical "pimping" questions for MS3/MS4 surgery rotations. A good white coat companion for reading during downtime during rotations. Not much help for preparing for MS3 Surgery shelf - another study aid is needed.

Surgery is a difficult rotation in terms of content and time commitment. Therefore, it's best to study to maximize your time. This book will prepare you for surviving rounds and those pimp sessions while you are retracting. The book is well organized by topic and great to quickly review before discussing/encountering a particular patient. The book saved me several times during a long surgery. However, of note, to survive the shelf exam and osce, you will need a textbook as well. Good choices to supplement this book would be Essentials of General Surgery or First Aid for the Surgery Clerkship.

Great for preparing for specific surgeries and being prepared for questions that you might get asked by your preceptor. Will need to supplement it with a more complete book to get the full picture, but great for what it is

This book is the reason I performed well in my Surgery rotation in medical school. I found myself going back to it before every surgery I scrubbed in on. Saved me many times when I was being "pimped" by my attendings. BUY THIS BOOK!

This was a great reference for surgical rotations while in medical school. I can think of several times I only had 10-20 minutes before a case, referred to this book, and was able to answer every question from the attendings. Also helpful when preparing for oral exams and step exams.
