Show synopsis Written by Dr. Brochert, who scored in the 99th percentile in Steps1 and 2 of the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE), this comprehensive, high-yield review book has been completely updated. It is cram packed with clinical information that has appeared on recent administrations of the USMLE Step 2, and will enable medical students to "crush the boards." Step 2 questions are more relevant to the clinical practice of medicine and focus on what a first year resident should know-how to diagnose, manage, and treat common diseases. Coverage includes epidemiology and biostatistics, pharmacology and microbiology, cardiac physiology, and basic EKG pathology. Knowing common and life-threatening diseases in the sub-specialties (orthopedics, urology, ophthalmology, neurosurgery, child psychiatry, vascular surgery, etc.) can increase one's score substantially.
