I ordered this to supplement first aid step 3 and have not been disappointed. I learn by reading cases, diagnostic workups and treatments and that's exactly how this review series is formatted. Kaplan really gets it that active problem based learning is the most effective method for studying... Especially for a test that emphasizes clinical management more so than random questions about the Krebs cycle or chromosome translocations or specific tumor markers.
What's worked well for me: bringing first aid for step 3 to study during MSIV rotation downtime, then make notes of areas I'm weak on, then going home and studying those cases in Kaplan. I also use and highly recommend onlinemeded , a series of free video lecture reviews. Best of luck to all you folks on our final board exam! Finish Strong and keep trucking!
