I bought this book at the beginning of my current M3 year now, thinking it might be useful on mainly my general medicine ward month. But let me tell you, I have used this on my peds (outpatient and inpatient), OBGYN, surgery, medicine, and family practice clerkships so far, and have found this book to be the most useful and HELPFUL book I have so far. It gives you just the right amount of information you need to take care of patients and LEARN from them (whereas other books just spit out pointless info). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I recently purchased this book (having started my 3rd year rotations in May), and I can tell you it has saved my butt over the past 6 weeks. I did a month of IM last month and am now on surgery, and this book has been absolutely essential to me surviving rotations. Highly recommended.
For anyone who goes into their clinical rotations (or has a few 'baby' clinical days m1 or m2 year), this book will SAVE YOUR BUTT. The great thing about this book is that you can use it on ALL your rotations, OB, FP, IM, Surgery, EM, Psych, Peds, etc. It really is very very useful
