I'm also finding a few errors in the answers. The written answer will indicate one letters but they state another. For instance on pg 252 it asks the most common cause of meningitis in AIDS. The answer is e, cryptococcosis, but the answer key on pg 257 says c, coccidiomycosis....
I decided to purchase this book as a way to help guide my reading after the daily clinics. This review works better than the standard textbook because the format encourages active learning. The questions are answered in full detail with brief references to the landmark trials that set the standard of care discussed. In academic medicine, this sort of knowledge is a must.
I enjoy the outlines at the end of each chapter as well. They condense the major concepts that are to be retained. And everything is extremely high yield. If a patient walks in with arm pain, nausea, and crushing substernal pain, you will know precisely what tests to order and what steps to take. The authors put considerable effort into discussing the interventions that must be taken with a diagnosis--something that a resident or senior medical student must learn.
My only concerns are over the occasional misstatements and spelling errors. However, these are easily recognized by readers with some graduate health professions education (eg: referring to elevated anion gap acidosis as "hypernatremia" in the diabetes chapter).
Furthermore, some updates are needed as well. In question 20 on page 22, there is a reference to the endocannibinoid modulator "Rimonabant." This drug is no longer being manufactured due to concerns over suicidal ideation side effects.
I trust that the authors are working at incorporating these suggestions into the next edition. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my experience with the book.
Somehow the Swanson seemed more polished, so I went with it. The lay out of Swanson isn't conducive to my $69 Kindle. I had to get paperback because the questions and answers come in small clusters. I had to jump back and forth between different screens. Much easier to flip physical pages than multiple pushes of the forward/back buttons. The cluster of answers is followed by a discussion of the illustrated topics.
If I was determined to use the Kindle, I would have gone with Graber and Wilbur. The answer immediately follows each question.
Use the preview and Kindle Sample options on Amazon to see which you like better. Either one should all good test prep, if read. Failure to read won't help in either case. Which will you more likely read?

Simple, fun, great learning, lots of FP topics. Used Swanson's to pass initial and recert. This will be my 2nd recert exam in FP, so I am using it for a 3rd time around.Published 22 hours ago by Amazon Customer
The number of mistakes is appalling! The only saving grace is that the anger arising from these mistakes may burn the correct answers into my head!? Good review otherwise.Published 7 months ago by eric dant
