The best student-to-student, high-yield books for the clerkships and shelf exams.
A must-have for the USMLE Step 2. This series follows the successful First Aid format to present information relevant to particular clerkships. Each book will be divided into three sections following the "First Aid for the Clinical Clerkship" series format. Section 1, "How to Succeed in the Clerkship and Impress on the Wards," gives medical students tips on how to survive the clerkship and do well on the shelf exam. Section 2, "High-Yield Topics," covers each core topic students need to know. The third and final section, "Classified," offers overviews of appropriate web sites accessible to medical students and notes opportunities (such as scholarships) for students interested in pursuing careers in the particular topic of that book. The last page of each book includes two tear-out pocket cards, which highlight important concepts in a pocket-ready format.
