Book Description:

The ultimate resource for USMLE Step 1 preparation! Published annually, this is the only student-to-student review book that provides facts and strategies from medical students who had previously taken the exam. The book contains over 900 frequently tested facts and mnemonics, 24 pages of high-yield color images similar to those on the exam, more than 100 clinical vignettes, and a completely revised rating of over 300 basic science review products.

Overrated but still worth buying

People often make the mistake of thinking that knowing this book forwards and backwards translates into a superior score. It probably doesn't. The pathology and physiology material in particular lacks both concepts and details that you will need for Step 1. Every edition of the book is laden with errors and should be used with caution. Finally the book is awkward to read and contains too many lists.

On the plus side, the pharmacology section is excellent. If you do not understand the figures you see, however, you should use another source to figure them out. My recommendation would be to use this book to wrap up your review after using other sources, to catch high yield information you may have previously missed. While the book does not come close to containing everything you need to know (except perhaps in pharm), it does a pretty good job of limiting itself to things that are likely to be on your test.

good enough

Good enough, but if you have already done kaplan and Goljan, you will find very little new things here. Still a fair review.
