HASH(0x9cf241a4) out of 5 stars Excellent complement resource March 23 2010
By Med_student_1 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Looking back on my internal medicine rotation (Jan/Feb 2010),I found this book to be the most helpful source of information with respect to the shelf exam.

I don't believe that it contains all of the information that you need to know, or for that matter, should know for your future. I do believe that it takes the critical concepts of diagnosis and management that you need for the shelf exam, and that you need to build a foundation on in further studies.

I used this text during the final week of my rotation, as a study guide for the shelf. Previously in the rotation I had read Step-up To Medicine once through. This book, used properly, allows for practice in the type of questions you'll be asked on the shelf. I also found that with 55 cases, every major disease that I was asked about was covered in this text in sufficient detail to answer the questions. Gives you the amount of information you'd need to know in the real world to speak intelligently with someone about a disease and it's treatment.

Worth every penny and then some as both a study guide and a quick read to refresh your knowledge base at any time.

HASH(0x9d1b0a88) out of 5 stars Great Supplement Aug. 5 2010
By Pinar Polat - Published on
Format: Paperback
For people who retain better through cases and paragraph format, Case Files can be a very helpful supplement to your main study guide for internal medicine. The cases are very relevant and cover the basic pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of a particular topic. I find the case/paragraph format and presentation of information to be very helpful in retaining information not only for the SHELF, but also for your actual rotation. The cases are short, easy to read, but full of pertinent and up to date information. This is the type of book you can read for 15 minutes and still get something out of, which may or may not be the case with main study guides.

HASH(0x9f3fc0a8) out of 5 stars Great case-based approach July 27 2011
By PRD - Published on
Format: Paperback
Learning through cases and vignettes is the backbone of this book, and it's a good way to learn key information about common diseases in internal medicine. Each section starts with a case and is followed by a discussion on the important features of the disease. It can't take the place of a larger medicine text but is a good companion and review for shelf exam. Definitely a good resource.

HASH(0x9cc61b04) out of 5 stars The best of the best Feb. 28 2010

Format: Paperback
Don't look further more for this kind of books on the market. This is the best book on cases. The price is also really reasonable. I observe that many books especially for USMLE are set at rather high price. Buy this one believe me!!!!

HASH(0x9ceecda4) out of 5 stars Good book May 24 2010
By AngryBaby - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really good for case reviews. Not as detailed information as you'll see in, for example, Step Up to Medicine. But great for getting a quick general idea of how to handle different presentations and also great when you feel like if you have to memorize 1 more page of bulleted information you might just scratch your eyes out or beat your head against the wall (or maybe you could just cut back on the caffeine but then how'd we get through medical school?!). I recommend this book.
