    Amazingly packed full of useful info for third year

    If I had picked this book up before third year, I would have done so many things differently. I've always heard that it's important to have an end of the rotation meeting with your attending to go over your performance but I had no idea that having this meeting can improve your overall grade. It talks about the most common problems attendings have with students in different rotations like medicine, surgery, pediatrics, etc. This book does a great job of giving you information from the medical education literature that you can use to get better evaluations. The authors also talk about all the factors that can affect a student's evaluation and what a student can do to make sure he gets a fair evaluation. This is really information you can't find anywhere. Anyone who uses this book will definitely have a leg up on the competition.
