Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: I wish I had had this book 15 years ago when I was studying for the internal medicine boards. The questions are designed in the format that one will encounter on the real boards and accurately test your ability to synthesize the clinical and laboratory data to make the best decisions in evaluating and caring for the patient. The questions take you beyond rote memory, which is the easy part, and give your brain a workout to see if you truly understand medicine.
Purpose: The purpose is to prepare you well to pass the internal medicine boards and identify your areas of weakness. This is the best way to assess your clinical acumen. Reading the standard textbooks will not teach you to think the way you are expected to when you take the exam. Very good discussions are included in the answer section. There are no references or index. This would have been a nice touch but does not detract from the usefulness of the book.
Audience: The audience is internists taking the internal medicine boards.
Features: The questions are presented randomly as they are on the board qualifying exams. More questions on evaluation of pulmonary function and arterial blood gases and ventilator settings need to be included. There are 329 questions.
Assessment: This is a must buy for anyone taking the internal medicine boards. Don't wait until the last minute to look at this book. You may be in for a rude shock and discover you don't have enough time to learn it all. This format will teach you how to structure your thinking the way the exam writers intended. This is a well written and well organized study aid.
