Section I: Preparing for the USMLE Step 2 CS
Posted October 4, 2007
Too much of this book is just plain incorrect and suggests that the author is not very familiar with the actual exam. It recommends gathering patient information that's completely irrelevant (e.g. address) recommends detailed physical exams that would be completely impossible to complete in the time allocated includes follow-up recommendations that are outside the scope of the allowed items on CS (medications, referrals, surgery, etc.). It does not have the all-important info on exactly what the SP is evaluating, or the 'challenge' questions that you can expect to get with every patient. First Aid is a much, much better choice, even though it's more expensive.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
