Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This pharmacology offering in the Case Files series provides 56 high-yield clinical cases to focus study in preparation for USMLE Step 1 and subject examinations.
Purpose: It is designed to help students in extracting the information from case scenarios that is so important for being successful on these examinations. This series has gained a very strong reputation over the years.
Audience: Although the audience is students who are preparing for examination, other health professionals also will find this book of value in working on their mastery of pharmacology. Further, faculty who teach pharmacology will find this an excellent aid in the preparation of clinical scenario-based questions for testing students.
Features: The first of the book's three sections is a concise discussion of the application of the basic sciences to clinical medicine, focusing on an approach to learning pharmacology, an approach to studying a disease, and an approach to reading the literature. The second section covers the subject of pharmacology with 56 carefully selected clinical cases that illustrate the important principles of pharmacology related to disease states. Each case includes key open-ended questions and is followed by an easy-to-understand discussion correlated to key pharmacological concepts, definitions of key terms, pharmacological pearls, and USMLE-style study questions. My only criticisms are that some of the questions are not of the type students will actually experience on the Step 1 examination and I found more errors in content than what I would expect from a third edition. However, students overall should find this to be an excellent book to help them understand the application of pharmacology to clinical cases.
Assessment: Faculty and students alike will find this book helpful in mastering an understanding of the basic concepts in pharmacology in preparation for certification examinations as well as in gaining confidence in being able to apply therapeutics during the clinical phase of the curriculum.
