First let me tell you that I am a PA student who is currently preparing for the PANCE. Okay, so we all (MD & PA students alike) love the little red book for our IM and ER rotations since it's ridiculously useful, fit in our coat pocket and it durable due to its touch binder cover. However, I picked this book up, by chance, while I was at B&N strumming through PANCE review books. What I like about this book is that it is fairly small and also fits in my coat pocket. It's set up so that when you want to look at say, hmmm, Nephritic Syndrome, the information is provided on only 2 pages (so there's no page turning for each topic) and it is broken up into boxes that are easy on the eye to read, easy to navigate and very informative. So, each topic will have a box for the introduction; etiology, epidemiology & risk factors; patient presentation; differential diagnosis; diagnostic evaluation; treatment & management; and prognosis & complications. This is not an overwhelming read and it's easy to quickly look something up before your attending shows up to pimp you. It'll help with those of you who like to look like rockstars when you're rounding with your IM attending or with your family practice or ED rotation attendings! :) That said, I think that this is great for the 3rd year, and many 4th year, Med students or the PA student. p.s. There's on for Peds too. I recommend it also for your Peds & ER rotations.
