very good book to review quickly the important points to be revised for the final exam in medicine. I am currently preparing this review, and it helps me. Interesting pics to illustrate the pathologies.

Is there something I don't get from these reviews? 23 janvier 2013
Par reviewer - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Let me begin by saying I seriously struggled about getting this book. I LOVED (and loved to hate) FA Step 1.. FA + Goljan audio + UW for 4.5 weeks got me >230 after being a mediocre student for the first 2 years of medical school. I was 100% set on doing FA for Step 2 after I took step 1 but then all these reviews on Amazon and SDN scared me away so I started panicking and got Step Up to Medicine and got overwhelmed by it during my IM clerkship and then got MTB Step 2 and feel duped (too much obviously missing and I do not believe the reviews for it on Amazon anymore). I also bought Secrets to Step 2 and I really like that one but it's kind of hard to learn from initially but it's definitely a keeper.

Anyways, I ended up buying FA Step 2 CK and just started skimming it. I don't know why everyone keeps saying that it is lacking in information but then I remembered people used to say the same about FA Step 1. I'd constantly hear people saying that it NEEDS to be supplemented by RR or Pathoma or BRS or whatever. I ignored them and told myself if I could memorize every line in FA I will fill my little brain to maximum capacity for a single exam.

Now that I am looking at FA Step 2 CK, I feel like I can say the same... If I can memorize everything in this book + understand all answers of UW, I will feel confident about taking Step 2. Secrets for Step 2 will be my Goljan audio (mention interesting little high yield factoids). In summary, if you ignored the haters that told you FA Step 1 is not enough only to see for yourself that it was, then at the very least you owe it to yourself to give FA Step 2 CK a shot.

Unfortunately, does not stand up to FA for the USMLE Step 1 25 janvier 2013
Par katarinaism - Publié sur

Almost all med students know of the importance of "First Aid for the Step 1" in their board preparation; it's almost a rite of passage to buy, read, and annotate in it until it's dog-eared and the spine breaks. So, when I began my Step 2 preparation, I naturally purchased this book as it seemed the intuitive choice. However, for those expecting the ease and terseness of the Step 1 book, you will surely be disappointed. This would make for a two-star review, however, after a review of the other main options, I'd give it three stars, because it certainly isn't much worse than the competitors.

For starters, the format is not the mnemonic and diagram-driven format of the Step 1 book, but is written in paragraph and bullet point format. It's something I actually prefer to the outline format of "Step Up to Step 2", but some may find it dense.

The second thing--and my main dig on this book--is that it doesn't say much more about diagnosis and treatment than the Step 1 book! I expected it to be more focused on management of disease, but was underwhelmed. Unlike "Step Up to Medicine" and the Kaplan High Yield course, which tell you exactly what the "best initial diagnostic test" or "most accurate test" or "best initial therapy" is, First Aid for the Step 2 really...doesn't tell you that much at all. In many cases, it merely lists a bunch of diagnostic tests that "may be useful" or "may show (insert finding here)" but does not tell you in what order to do them. With treatment, it is equally as vague for many conditions.

It also surprisingly omits many conditions I've ran into in my question banks, such as every other type of aphasia except Broca's and Wernicke's. The section on non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, which is a very diverse group of diseases, is condensed into a 1-2 page section that doesn't distinguish well between say, follicular B cell lymphoma, and Burkitt's.

There are some good things about this book; as I previously alluded to, the paragraph form is something I actually prefer. The writing style is very conversational compared to, say, Cecils' Essentials and it is in a very accessible format. This is an OK book if you plan on annotating heavily into it from question banks, reference books, journal articles, etc. However, if you don't plan on doing that (or if you are starting late in your preparation), I would suggest either reading this along with Step Up to Medicine to avoid missing out on the finer points of diagnosis and treatment or using a different book entirely like Step Up or MTB.

Not comprehensive, but a good place to start 25 mai 2012
Par Noah - Publié sur

I'm loving the new full-color printing of this book. It's a pleasure to read and the graphics are much more engaging. First Aid is the place to start for Step 1 and now Step 2 studying. The outline form (with some tables) is a good condensed way to reconnect with an overview of the information during a first pass through. Unfortunately, the content isn't nearly comprehensive enough, and this absolutely shouldn't be a single source for study material. I used this book, going through a chapter and then doing all of the USMLE World Qbank questions on the subject for that same chapter, writing in additional notes in this book's margins to create a cumulative reference for my final pass through. Once that was done I was much more comfortable with an adequate coverage of the material, and it was always a bit shocking how much I needed to add (and looking back after the test I'm glad that I did). Another complete pass through UWorld questions and then a final read through this book and I was ready to go.

The best part of the book is the quick review pages at the end, perfect for the few days before the test to get the last cram session completed with a rehashing of the most high yield mnemonics and associations.

Mediocre CK Prep 1 mai 2013
Par Chaz - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
We all more or less prepared the same for Step 1, and we all fell in love with First Aid. This book doesn't come close to the Step 1 prep book. First off, clinical medicine is largely an evidence based practice where you have lines of therapy. You give Drug Z for Disease A, and if there is a contraindication to Drug Z, you give drug Y, etc. This book will have NONE of that information. It gives diseases and treatments in vague clusters. It will only act to jog your memory of everything you should already know. I found myself constantly looking up information in Uptodate, and this book was wrong 50% of the time. That being said, did I learn and score a 270 because I was constantly verifying it's validity? Maybe.

Unfortunately, there is no silver bullet for Step 2CK. I looked at tons of resources, and there just isn't anything great. The most important factor to do well on CK is to buy the usmle world qbank, and complete every question. Make sure you look up all the right and wrong answer in Uptodate.

Disappointed 10 novembre 2013
Par doctornewyork - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I scored in the 260s on Step1 and had read FA Step1 cover-to-cover three times for that exam. FA-2CK is nothing like the Step1 book. The Step1 text has lots of diagrams, flow charts, mechanisms and bullet points. That is, the Step1 book is great. This 2CK book is just paragraphs and paragraphs of text that run on and does a wonderful job of bringing out latent ADD. And not to mention, nothing is accentuated anywhere, so it's impossible to gather from the text what is HY info vs what is merely supporting. If you compare with MTB-2, by Conrad Fischer, you'll notice that it has lots of bolding and explicit statements about what is seen in questions; MTB-2CK is 1000x better.

All I can say is: FA Step1 was 5 stars, but FA-2CK is 2 at best. If you want a book to critically read to give yourself Step2 foundation, get MTB-2 and go through that FIRST, not FA-2CK. I know this might seem really hard to believe simply because the Step1 book was so critical to everyone's prep, but the 2CK book just isn't anywhere near the same level. I'm just giving you the heads up so that if and when you buy it, you're not surprised by its shortcomings.
