5.0 out of 5 stars PIMP proof must buy Sept. 19 2009
This is a medical student's requirement to impressing your attending while in the operating room. It contains the facts and trivia of many surgical topics. The purpose of the book is to inform you of the most miniscule details and impress your attending during the operating room. It will not help you pass written exams, but it will help you feel less nervous when your boss looks you in the eye and says, "hey, how long do you think the small bowel is?".

4.0 out of 5 stars Pimp book April 2 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book for getting your attendings questions right, but it isn't going to help you for the shelf exam. It doesn't give clinical vignettes and doesn't introduce principles of managing conditions. Most of the surgery shelf exam has to do with managing post operative complications or how to manage a surgical patient as a medical intern. With that said, this book gives general information that a beginner needs to know ranging from where the surgeon stands and how to tie knots to how to classify orthopedic fractures. It is a good pocket book, but if you only have one source to choose to pass the shelf, leave this one at the store.

5.0 out of 5 stars Key to success in the OR April 6 2010
By MedIT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found the OR to be an almost laughable game once I started reading Recall. The attendings would ask the exact questions in Recall in almost every case with very few exceptions. Knowing what case you are about go into and taking the 10 mins or so to read the relevant chapter or section in Recall made answering those questions very easy.

I never tried to read Recall from cover to cover. Doing so would be painfully difficult as it is truly just a list of high yield facts with very little interpretation or explanation.

Recall is organized around procedures / diagnosis and as such is of limited use as a reference for expanding a differential diagnosis in a case write up.

It is, however, an absolutely invaluable tool for surviving the OR.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Recall Book - Use it to prep for pimping May 6 2008
By jmmed - Published on Amazon.com
Surgery is a difficult rotation in terms of content and time commitment. Therefore, it's best to study to maximize your time. This book will prepare you for surviving rounds and those pimp sessions while you are retracting. The book is well organized by topic and great to quickly review before discussing/encountering a particular patient. The book saved me several times during a long surgery. However, of note, to survive the shelf exam and osce, you will need a textbook as well. Good choices to supplement this book would be Essentials of General Surgery or First Aid for the Surgery Clerkship.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have! Dec 21 2008
By Lympho Site - Published on Amazon.com
I had this book for my surgery rotation and I was noted to have a tremendous knowledge base by the course director. He said, "either you're spending a lot of time reading, or you're not reading and you're just brilliant." This was the first course where I used the recall series and let me just say that I am not "brilliant" and there is no way someone can read a lot during a surgery rotation. It was all this text.

It's great to glance at between cases or when there's five minutes down time. And, it covers all the questions you're likely to be pimped on (that's why it looked like I knew a lot).

4.0 out of 5 stars acceptable Jan. 31 2010
By BCereus - Published on Amazon.com
This book is fantastic to study from. The diagrams, triad listings, and Q&A format is wonderful for my surgery rotation as a PA student. However, the book is a little heavy to carry around during rotations in the lab coat. As a student it's imperative to carry around as many references as possible so when a question arises i have a quick way to look it up but this is just a little too bulky but it is perfect to study from
