5.0 out of 5 stars Nice color version, good paper quality, pleasant to read and use, January 3, 2013

This review is from: First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 2013 (First Aid USMLE) (Paperback)
This full-color book with fully integrated pictures is a very pleasant surprise, especially because I have studied a secondhand FA 2010 book for years. Looking back, I understand that the full-color was already introduced in the 2012 version. Still, IMHO it's worth buying the 2013 version instead of 2012. As others mentioned, errors in 2012 are corrected and embryo section has been integrated to organ systems. Also, the paper quality seems to be better (see the review of the 2012 version). I tried a highlighter and the ink didn't seem to smear. Other useful improvements from the 2010 version include (not an exhaustive list): clear headers and session subheadings, beautiful vibrant scheme illustrations, updates in pharmacology of all organs, and changes in psychiatry. Honestly I cannot think of any major change they can do to make this book better. This is probably a "This Is It" version that you can use for both the step1 and through the clerkship.

thank you for taking the time to post your review. I have 2010 edition, from a friend, with wonderful notes on it, but it seems it worth to get 2013 and transfer the notes on it
