Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This is billed as a "last minute clerkship and board review...written by medical students who aced the USMLE Step 2." Using a question and answer format, it has many things going for it, but it impressed me as a list of terms and facts to remember, without the supporting clinical relevance or associated physiology.
Purpose: The author recognizes the limitations, calling the book a "high-yield resource, to endorse the rapid recall of the essentials."
Audience: Although directed at those preparing for the USMLE, it does have value for those who would like to refresh their memory of common terms, associations, and eponyms. While I commend the authors for their work, I am concerned about who is mentoring them in their efforts or, stated differently, while this approach appeared to work for them, the practice of memorizing sterile lists for the purpose of taking tests may be shortsighted.
Features: The question and answer format is a reasonable approach to studying for exams. The index is comprehensive and helpful, but the black-and-white pictures do not show the intended lesions well, and the one algorithm is not consistent with the format of the book.
Assessment: This book does have the limited utility of presenting facts for memorization for the USMLE, but it is not as helpful for those who need to understand the physiology before memorizing simple facts.
