HASH(0x98b79db0) out of 5 stars Good boards review May 9 2007
By When do I get to be a doctor? - Published on
Format: Paperback
My medical school mol and cell bio courses didn't emphasize the same concepts that I think the boards (Step I) cares about. I'm not sure this book is totally worth $30, but the section about mol and cell bio in First Aid was sparse (especially about diseases). A lot of these diseases come up again in organ system pathology. Nevertheless, I thought it was a nice to approach medical conditions from the angle of molecular biology. For example, it's a good review excercise to look at all the different kinds of cellular receptors and get clinical highlights (ie: associated pharmacology or diseases). I basically used it as a quick read, and I will review the sections that I am weaker at in more detail. "Upperclassmen" have stated that the boards tends to emphasize receptors and signalling pathways, and I found this book to be a good resource for those topics.

As far as learning actual mol/cell bio - this is a typical HighYield book - no frills, outline format. I think it'd be really advantageous to have familiarity with all the basic concepts before using this book. For example, it's not a good place to learn how meiosis works.

By the way, the binding is terrible. My book fell apart after I used it for less than a week (granted it was super-intense all day studying, but still!)

HASH(0x98bf83cc) out of 5 stars Example of a bad "review" book. May 15 2009

If you read in the front of first aid, it says that you shouldn't waste your time on textbooks when reviewing for Step 1. The reason for this is because, for example, a pharmacology book would contain dosage information when you don't need it for step 1. This book is a HORRIBLE review book. It goes into more detail in some areas than I learned in undergrad. It seems to be written from a research perspective rather than a clinically relevant perspective. Every gene location that is named in this book goes into the chromosome number, location, region, subregion, subband, and sub-subband. Yes, I learned aforementioned terminology from this book. I would suggest finding a different review book or maybe just reading the bold stuff and picking and choosing what you want to read. The high yield series really dropped the ball on this edition of this book.

I only read the first 2 chapters, but it was enough to make me turn to another molecular bio source! This book is EXTREMELY detailed. I mean, really --- do you really need to know difference between all of the different types of spinocerebellar ataxia for the boards? How about 30+ different ion transporters throughout the body? This book might work if you're good at filtering out unnecessary detail --- but doesn't that defeat the purpose of a board review book? For Step 1, I ended up using the previous edition of HY Cell and Molecular Bio, and it was perfect. A quick read, but just enough detail to get me through the molecular questions on Step 1. Good luck!

HASH(0x98b79498) out of 5 stars I liked it Feb. 27 2008

This was the perfect supplement to FA. Though it does go into greater detail than necessary sometimes, I felt like I learned every molecular biology concept that could possibly be tested on the USMLE and earned great marks on Qbank. If you have time to read it in early Spring, you should and then not worry about CMB for the rest of the study session.

Honestly I feel like most of the stuff in this book isnt really High Yield. It is only good to look up a few things like nucleotides, protein receptors, but I wouldnt read it from front to back. You would be wasting your time if prepping for USMLE. Most of the content is not relevant. For USMLE just stick to FA, Uworld, rx or Kaplan q bank, pathoma, kaplan physio and pharm, HY neuro...thats it.

Cant believe I bought this book but I spent like 3-4 dollars on it so things couldve been worse.
