    I love the Case Files Series

    During third year of medical school, the way students learn totally changes. The most important information that students retain is going to be about patients they admit, that they see on the wards or work-up while on call. While other study materials give students the 'facts,' Case Files realizes that the best way for junior and senior medical students to learn is through case presentations. I would say that their format closely resembles the paradigm of how students should learn; a case is presented, discussed, key terms are defined, questions are presented about the text, and the information about the case is summarized. These books almost make it too easy to retain and apply clinically useful information! I used the psychiatry book as a complement to other texts, but it was my sole source of study for ob/gyn. There were a couple of problems with the book, however. I noticed several spelling and grammatical errors in the psychiatry book; it seems like they may have rushed this to publishing. In addition, after taking the psychiatry shelf exam, I think that more cases should be presented on adolescent issues, psych related general medical conditions, and neurological cases that can get confused with psych problems. Nevertheless, the series provides a solid foundation of clinical knowledge in all clerkships, as well as helps students retain information for shelf exams. I highly recommend this series to any medical student studying for third year, Step 2 CK, or any medical professional wanting to review material in an extremely clinically relevant way!
