USMLE Step 1 Recall: Buzzwords for the Boards (Recall Series)

USMLE Step 1 Recall: Buzzwords for the Boards (Recall Series)
By Brent A Reinheimer


* Publisher: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
* Number Of Pages: 464
* Publication Date: 2004-04-01
* ISBN-10 / ASIN: 0781745136
* ISBN-13 / EAN: 9780781745130



Product Description:

This quick, easy-to-use review helps students get prepared for Step One of the USMLE. The question-and-answer RECALL employs helps students memorize the facts that are most often tested on the USMLE. The Second Edition organizes facts according to their specific basic science disciplines and provides accurate, up-to-date information at just the right level of depth for study and review. Many students regard "Buzzwords" as the strongest USMLE Step 1 tool on the market. An especially popular Power Review section helps students brush up on the details and test how well they've retained knowledge over the study period.



Summary: Needs work
Rating: 2

Has the potential for being a very helpful book, but I found it to be filled with repeated questions and incorrect information - suprising for a 2nd edition. Wouldn't recommend this book until someone does a much better job editing it.


Summary: Not as bad as some of the other reviewers say
Rating: 4

This book isn't so bad. It is true that the NBME is moving away from using buzzwords in their questions, but many of the questions in this book are useful to remind you of important facts. For example, the first question in the biochemistry section is "What is the rate limiting step in glycolysis?" Answer "PFK-1". If you're the type of person who likes to study by answering questions (which I do) this book will save you time. I normally make up my own questions as I go along but this book does it for me. And not all keywords are bad -- it's difficult to describe verbally what Howell-Jolly bodies in a manner that specifically hints at asplenia -- it's just plain easier to use the eponym. With those considerations in mind, I would recommend this book, not as a primary source for study, but a good way to form associations with material you've just studied and to remember important, frequently tested facts.
