Maximum Retention—Minimal Time

"Deja Review provides a review of biostatistics, epidemiology, ethics and health care systems in a manner that I have not found in other review books. What I liked best is the versatility ... It's small enough to carry around in my backpack and I can flip to a chapter between classes or during downtime." — Daniel Marcovici, Third Year Medical Student, Tel Aviv University, Sackler School of Medicine

"The format of the book is great. This is a great book for Step 1 and the shelf. It focused on high yield subjects ... I found it useful even to refer to for the psychiatry clerkship." — Sarah Fabiano, Third Year Medical Student, SUNY Update Medical University

"With a well-organized and easily accessible format, this book reviews the major concepts of behavioral science with a particular focus on high yield topics....While this book may be used by students at all levels, it is ideal for those rotating on a psychiatry clerkship and preparing for USMLE....Its ease of use and design set it apart from other books covering individual subjects. 3 Stars."—Doody's Review Service
