Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: These flash cards differ from other pharmacology flash cards in that each card has a clinical vignette introducing a prototypic drug on one side with relevant, high-yield information on the other side.
Purpose: This is a study aid prepared by students who have recently gone through the curriculum and medical certification examinations; it is intended to aid students who are beginning the process. Many students will find this to be a very useful study aid.
Audience: The cards are intended specifically for students who are preparing for Step 1 of the USMLE. However, they would be valuable to anyone studying pharmacology.
Features: Each major topic is introduced with one or more cards with the important drugs presented in a tree diagram format with key principles on the other side. This is followed by a series of cards which have a clinical vignette on one side that exemplifies the use of a prototypic drug for treating the clinical situation. The other side states the drug class followed by relevant information addressed in five domains: similar drugs; mechanism of action; clinical uses; side effects; and other. Information is limited to high yield information that is pertinent to passing Step 1 of the USMLE.
Assessment: Students can choose from several sets of pharmacology flash cards in addition to these (Pharmacology Flash Cards, 2nd edition, Brenner and Back (Elsevier, 2009); Pharmacards: Review Cards for Medical Students, 3rd edition, Johannsen and Sabatine (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2009); Pharmacology Flash Cards, Kim and Swanson (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2004). Each has its own advantages and disadvantages with students expressing a strong preference for one over the others. The Lange Pharmacology Flash Cards have several strengths in that they are prepared by authors who have recently taken certification examinations and each prototypic drug is introduced by a clinical vignette. The use of clinical vignettes is a very powerful method to direct students to think in terms of patient care rather than only memorizing high-yield facts. This provides long-term learning and, moreover, programs students to think in a manner that facilitates success on USMLE examinations, since most questions involve clinical vignettes. Many students will find these flash cards to be a very useful study aid.

    Key tool for USMLE Step 1

    I took my Step I boards late this summer and came across this great resource. It's the newer version of the Lange Pharm flashcards. They are definitely improved from the prior by comparison and I used them as my primary source, cross referencing with First Aid to study pharm. These beat out the other pharm cards on the market because they seemed to wean down each drug into the most board-relevant info or at least were shorter. I don't think I came across an exam question in pharm that wasn't in these cards. The clinical vignettes were a good practice run, but the info on the back of each card is really all you need to know for the exam. Highly recommended.

    Great Resource!

    I used these cards while studying for my pharmacology course and then again while preparing for USMLE Step 1. These cards are comprehensive, concise and clear. They became my primary resource while studying. The clinical vignettes were helpful as well. Definitely have and will continue to recommend these cards to friends.
