    A must have!

    A must have for the boards!! Accurately and sufficiently covers key topics for the USMLE Step 2 CS, that are generally covered in the exam, and that all medical students should know. A great step-by-step, checklist allows the student to narrow their focus onto the most important points that are essential to passing the exam.
    If you're not a fan of the First Aid series, you will definitely like this one! Especially like the sample closures given in this version that was lacking in previous editions. Really, the only thing you'll need, besides actually knowing your clinical skills necessary to pass the exam!!
    Enjoy!
