The Instant Exam Review for the USMLE Step 2 Second Edition is a comprehensive, rapid review of high yield facts presented in outline format. The Instant Exam Review can be read quickly, yet completely covers the USMLE Step 2 "high impact" fact list. It includes the description, pathology, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment for the clinical sciences-internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, preventive medicine and public health, psychiatry, and surgery. The outlines are organized with an integrated approach along the three dimensions of physician task, population groups, and disease process. They are constructed to omit time-consuming material, yet contain essential core information necessary for exam success. The unique design provides a working outline throughout your course of study, as well as a quick review before your exams.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Description: This second edition provides a comprehensive compendium of general clinical medical knowledge required for part 2 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination.
Purpose: This book provides a concise and easily readable review of the high-impact fact list for exam preparation. It reviews all of the different clinical specialties, presenting the knowledge necessary for the provision of patient care under supervision.
Audience: Medical students and foreign medical graduates preparing for the USMLE Step 2 clinical sciences examination will find this useful.
Features: Essential information for exam success is presented in a concise format, with key points bulleted and highlighted for easy reading. The lack of illustrations and diagrams, however, decreases the visual impact of the text.
Assessment: The concise and well-presented format of this book provides an easily readable review for the Step 2 of the USMLE. It provides the clinical medical knowledge essential for the provision of patient care under supervision. In an effort to be comprehensive, however, certain areas are too detailed. Because instructions for the USMLE Step 2 examination include an emphasis on health promotion and prevention, it is surprising this subject does not warrant a separate chapter in this book. It is necessary reading for all students attempting this exam without recent clinical sciences exposure and for those who have not organized their own medical school notes into a concise and easily readable format.
