First Aid has it all covered

First Aid has it all covered. I use USMLE world, and annotate my first aid. Some people sit and read first aid, but it's not really a book to sit and read, as there is no text, mostly figures, charts and factoids. But it contains most of what you need to know, and there is space to scribble in the things you learn from the Q-bank. Cheap, but not worth it, despite the great names listed as contributors.

1100+ must-know facts and mnemonics organized by organ system and general principles. Hundreds of high-yield clinical images you need to know before the exam – including 24 pages of full-color photos. Updated test-taking advice from students who aced the 2009 exam

Fantastic aid. Must read for any one preparing for their USMLE step 1 examinations. Easy to read as well. Provides enough details so the user does not feel overwhelmed by the presence of excessive facts. Split into relevant sections including Gross Anatomy, Biochemistry, and other regions. Have enough side margins in the book to add relevant details or make annotations as well while reading the book. Can easily read book within one week or less. Includes helpful mnemonics that assist with further retention of material. Includes an index at the end of the book allowing one to quickly review relevant diseases.

First Aid has it all covered. I use USMLE world, and annotate my first aid. Some people sit and read first aid, but it's not really a book to sit and read, as there is no text, mostly figures, charts and factoids. But it contains most of what you need to know, and there is space to scribble in the things you learn from the Q-bank. This edition is updated, terrific, and spot-on for boards. Included are reviews of other study materials for board exams which I found to be very useful. This book and a Q-bank, I'd stick with World or Kaplan, are all you truly need. I think going through both Q-banks would be more worthwhile than reading more board prep books. Other review books are useful during your coursework though. (I made the mistake of ordering USMLE consult, mostly 1-step as opposed to the 2 or 3 step questions you find on Step 1 and it doesn't lock you out of other computer programs, so it's easy to get distracted, and twice it erased my practice tests. Cheap, but not worth it, despite the great names listed as contributors.)

I *just* took STEP 1 on July 28th, and there were MANY questions on my exam that were literally straight out of First Aid (30%). However, there were several questions that were also straight out of UWorld, that were NOT in First Aid (30%). The remaining 40% were thinking questions that required application of knowledge gained from other sources like USMLE World or Doctors In Training (DIT)

Conclusion:
First Aid 2010 is great ONLY when coupled with DIT and UWorld. If you go through all three sources (First Aid, DIT, and UWorld), I strongly believe that you will not only pass STEP1, but get well above a 240. Good luck fellow MS3's-to-be!

I think this book is essentail for preparing for STEP 1...it is even better than the 2008 edition (I purchased the 2008 edition when I first begun med school). For those of you that have just begun medical school don't waste your money purchasing this book yet...wait until a few months before you are about to write STEP 1 and purchase the most recent edition that you can get your hands on....the information in the book does change because it tries to emphasise what is most high yield / recent trends in testing on the exam.
Good luck to everyone writting in 2010.

Great book

This book is a great book to study from. It's very concise and easy to follow, with some good hints on how to remember key concepts. I use it as an overview when studying for class to get the big picture on certain topics, and then use my primary notes for a more in-depth look at the material. This book came highly recommended to me, and thus far, it is proving to be quite useful in my studies. I will be using it as my primary resource when I study for the USMLE STEP 1.

super helpful for step 1, concise and easy to go through. would combine this with the uworld qbank
I've been using this book now for the first 2 weeks of my second year and I'm loving it. Whenever I'm getting confused on a topic, I pull out First Aid for the "big picture" then go back to the lecture. Our school does a lot of small group learning and I've found this + Robbins to be great for preparing for those sessions.

Good stuff!
