Blueprints in Family Medicine is not only useful for steps 2&3 USMLE takers. Students like myself have found this book useful as a quick and easy reference when in comes to common clinical problems and questions. This book has helped me pinpoint to answers to medical cases discussed in school. It provides essential information and possible causes of common patient compliants. The brief but substantial explanation of the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, diagnostic approach, and treatment/management of common diseases gives the student astute understanding of the disorders and diseases found in the book.

Great resource for both residents and medical students with concise overviews of the most common presenting illnesses seen in general family practice. I used it to study for USMLE Step 3, and found it a very high yield reference.

Very concise explanations of the most commonly encountered conditions in the clinic setting. This book is a must have for any third year medical student doing a family practice clerkship or for any PGY-1 in family medicine. Easy to read and understand with good charts within each chapter and excellent summaries at the end of each chapters for that last minute studying time.

This book is unlike any other review book for third year medical school. It has a primary care focus with excellent management guidelines for *outpatient* medicine. Management discussions include realistic home remedies for patients and psychosocial implications of disease. I don't think there is anything missing! Overall a perfect source for your family medicine rotation. As a fourth year medical student entering a family practice residency, I plan to use this book for quick reference on how to approach common problems seen in the outpatient setting. Specifically, the section on preventive medicine is superb with guidlines to the common well-patient visit. Unique sections include those on constitutional symptoms and women's health. I especially valued the time given to differential diagnosis of red eye, edema, abnormal pap smears and back pain. These topics are often barely skimmed over in reveiw books. The skin section is also great with common skin problems seen in the outpatient office (acne, infections, eczema) not just the usual "ABC's of melanoma". As a finishing touch, there are great review questions with good explanations. The only real limitation is the same limitation with all the Blueprint series: it is often restricted by the organizational approach and the content is sometimes too basic. More pictures (i.e. STD chapter and skin chapter) would be helpful, as well as x-rays for the cardio and pulmonary sections.
