The second edition of this book will include 125 clinical vignette style questions at the end of the book.

The series format is consistent for all five titles; each title presents short expositions on one of the five key clinical topics. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

2.0 out of 5 stars uh........i dont think so Sept. 19 2003
this is like a 100 page book that costs....too much. A total rip of first of all. I read the other reviews for this book and i am amazed that people actually found this book useful for the step 2. on my step 2 all i got was questions from trauma in surgery, (thats a well known DONT get general surgery questions on the step 2 these days).... this book doesnt even touch trauma. plus i got lotsa orthopedics Qs, which again, are not included in this book.... i really dont understand why its even written out to be a book for the USMLE step 2. as i keep saying in all my blue prints what you want, buy what you want, but make sure you have the OBGYN and Peds blueprints books.

1.0 out of 5 stars old edition Sept. 4 2003
By jojo
don't buy this copy. this is a 2nd edition book published in 2001 - the 3rd edition (released may 2003) is already out at the same price. Buy the new edition and get more for your money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not suitable for USMLE March 29 2004
This book contains not much of details for USMLE. Even you have very little time left and lots of topics to cram, don't think about this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that good. May 20 2006
By Ocular/Orbital Surgeon - Published on
I used many of the blueprints books during my clincal rotations in medical school. This one was by far the worst one. The information is more of a cursory overview of several topics. There is just not enough scope or detail in this book for it to be useful. I used this book in conjunction with "Surgical Recall" which is an excellent book. I also referred to the "Essential of General Surgery" book on some specific topics such as fluid and electrolyte management that are not well covered in either book.

Perhaps future editions of this book will be better.

5.0 out of 5 stars High yield concise review for wards and Step 2 Jan. 22 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I did particularly well on the surgical subcategory of Step 2, and it's owed to this book. Hands down, it's the best, highest-yield 3rd/4th year review for surgical disease - including epidemiology, symptoms, signs, diagnosis, and management. Awesome for review before the big test; also useful for overview of surgical diseases during your clerkship. One small complaint: it costs lots of dollars for about 100 pages.

2.0 out of 5 stars Superficial material Jan. 22 2005
By MISHMANKA - Published on
This book was far too superficial to use as a review book for shelf exams or to obtain an adequate understanding in general surgery. I would recommend the Lawrence surgery book, which takes longer to read, but at least you are gaining a better grasp of the material.
