I think that this ('Advanced Life Support for the USMLE Step 2') is an excellent text for last minute review. It is not intense enough to study for subject area boards, but is still useful when you don't have enough time for a more expansive text. I used this and 'Prescription for the Boards' as my study resources and was able to increase my Step 2 score more than 20 points over my Step 1 score. The pictorial discussions of disease processes is the best memory aid I have found in texts like this one. I highly recommend this book for anyone about to take the step. I can't find anything that compares to this book for board review. I give it 5 stars and 2 thumbs up.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
