Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This is one of a large number of USMLE preparation books written by university faculty members. It consists of 500 multiple choice questions with answers based upon explanations from textbooks listed in the bibliography. The previous edition was published in 2006.
Purpose: Intended to help prepare medical students for the USMLE examination, clearly this book also could be useful in refreshing one's memory or as part of a general medicine board review.
Audience: Medical students are the audience. The authors and contributors are faculty of the Texas Tech University Health Science Center.
Features: The 500 questions and explanations for the answers make up the content. Other than the books listed in the bibliography, there are no references.
Assessment: As USMLE preparation, this book is useful, but it should not be the only study source for the examination.
