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.
Another complaint is that there should be a dedicated Eye section since there are eye conditions sporadically throughout the book and many concepts not covered at all. I've had to write up an entire new chapter on my own for this.
As a suggestion for this and pretty much all other review books, I go to Staples/Office Max and have the book unbound (they slice off the binding edge) and either spiral bound or 3-whole punched (to put in a binder so you can add/remove pages, like I did with this book to add in material they don't cover at all) so that the book can lie flat while you are studying for hours on end. One step further: for Q/A review books (i.e. the Pretest series), I separated the book into two books--one with all the questions and one with all the answers, so you can check your answers and accompanied explanations as you go, when the question is still fresh in your head; you also don't have to mark your answers in the questions sections then, so you can retest yourself later.
This is a woefully incomplete resource. Whenever I get NBME questions, USMLE World questions, or clerkship pimp questions wrong, I go back to this only to find nothing. I end-up having to write whole new sections after performing the necessary research myself. This may be a good exercise in itself, but certainly is not a feature of the book. The book was not designed with this in mind: there is no space to write anything. I have had to start a word processing document to record everything and allow for quick search.
I have also tried reading the chapters as a textbook and found the "q[uestion,]" "mnenomic," and "key fact" boxes in the margins to be distracting. I already have a problem with being ADHD. Aren't all the facts in this book already "key facts?" This just makes it that much worse. Their mnemomics are not even that effective. The "Six Ps?" How insightful! There are a million words in the English language that start with 'p.' I am not sure if the authors know what "mnenomic" means what they think it means. They are confusing (bad) acronyms with mnenomics.
Perhaps the only thing I do like are their high quality figures which they have so thoughtfully assembled from various sources.
I don't like this at all.
