Should not be the main source, but a supplement Jan. 7 2012
By Will J - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a good REVIEW book. Don't expect it to teach you or explain anything because that's not the purchase. It has great charts and tables that are well organized.

It is often referred to as "kaplan's version of first aid"

However, I have to say that it is better than first aid in how well it organizes information. Sometimes, though, it includes a little too much detail.

A combination of medessentials and first aid, in my opinion, is better than having just one.

If you had to pick 1, however, go with first aid. It's the gold standard.

Excellent resource! March 18 2010
By jt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great complement to First Aid, as it has somewhat better organization and more in-depth explanations of key concepts. The best way to use it is probably to follow along all throughout your first two years, then focus more on First Aid during your intense Step1 study period, referring back to this when necessary.

I highly recommend this, and the Kaplan Step1 Qbook, to supplement your study materials.

Good Review Book Feb. 13 2010
By TexasZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book itself is great since it gives you some more info than the FA alone and has a better organization of the material, but i have only gone over a couple of sections. Get the book if you want a little more info than whats in the FA or you prefer table and diagrams.

The internet access questions are of very limited help when it comes to STEP studying, so i would not get the book because of the internet access.

Also, the book does not have a code like most review books that you have to scratch off. When you register on the site it will ask you, what the last word on a certain page is, and thats the code. Just read the pages where it talks about logging in to the site to register.

A Must Have for Step 1 Feb. 21 2010
By Fathom Meade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent review book for Step 1. Very thorough with great pictures and charts and tables. Does not have mnemonics or ways to remember facts like First Aid but the amt of information is very good. A definite worthy purchase.

PERFECT WHEN USED WITH FIRST AID April 27 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First Aid on step 1 is a great review book. Med essentials to be made to read with with first aid. First aid can only cover soo much so they leave out alot of information. Med essentials figured how to add important info and made it look like first aid. So you can add all the notes to fist aid or read both books at the same time. If you are anal about achieving 99 percentile then med essentials is for you. If not, then first aid will do.
