First Aid step 3 continues the long tradition of First Aid books for the USMLE's. But let's face it, you need the books less and less, and they put less and less into them for each one. The best one is/was for Step 1. Step 2 book was useful. Step 3 book is somewhat useful. (Having said that, it was the only book I studied from, to the extent that I studied, and I got over 240...).
The book has an above average number of typos and appears to have been rushed out.
The highlight is the 100 mini cases that have differentials and lab tests that are useful for the CCS cases.
But overall, I think it is the best review book for step 3. Not too much extraneous information, no fake questions that are either too easy or too hard. Just a lot of good info. Some of it is, however, utterly and completely irrelevant to the exam. And they could have spent more time reviewing outpatient material such as derm, emergency room, and less about inpatient medicine, almost everybody who takes step 3 does not need a review of inpatient anything after internship :)
1. appendicitis (???!!)
2. small/large bowel obstruction
3. rheumatic fever
4. pediatric rashes - NO mention of measles, mumps, rubella except how they affect the neonate. I'm looking more for what the different rashes in a kid look like and their accompanying sxs
5. spontaneous bacterial peritonitis
6. aortic aneurysm (!!!)
7. contraindications for vaccines
8. skimped on a lot of cardiac medication side effects - no mention of dig or amiodarone or lidocaine toxicity
9. delayed puberty
11. diaper rash (seriously, this is def. asked in step 3)
12. discusses gastroschisis but not omphalocele??
you get the idea.
Their biostatistic section was a nightmare - poorly organised and lacking basic information - such as defining different types of experimental study biases and including poorly worded explanations instead of just giving us an example like they did in step 2 First Aid. The cardiology section LUMPED stable, unstable angina and MI into one single-paged mess.....I don't know about you, but more clarification about who goes and gets cathed and what the indications for angioplasty, PCI are would have been nice.
And WAY too much emphasis on: ortho (2-3 pages of chart/table devoted to ortho injuries???)
CSS section probably fine if you use it - I didn't use it at all. I just used USMLE world's CSS cases and those were more than sufficient and inclusive.
Unfortunately, this is probably still the best review book out there for step 3, if nothing else than for the familiar format.
