Great review product - "flashcards in a book" format. Great book to review for the steps - note that it is a flashcard-like quick-quiz format (described as the "prayer hands" approach in the book, where you cover half a table with your hand and quiz yourself), and not a primary resource. (by LR) Excellent. Excellent book. The information is in a very useful summary, and the CD allows to practice before the test, something extremely important. This book is the "sine qua non" for the Step 2. Do not go to the test without studying it.

Simple, what you need is here! In just one hour I read about 45 pages with ease, this book is intended for those who are short of time and need the facts in a simple clear way. It is not intended to be a complete resource for your USMLE preparation but for sure it is a great help. USMLE Step @ and the Ridiculous Book: I just recently finished studying for the USMLE 2. I received a passing score and was able to go on to an amazing residency. About my studying: I used a variety of resources, howvever, one instrumental tool was the Boards Made Ridiculously Simple Step 2 by Andreas Carl. I felt that this little book, seemingly insignificant, was really a brilliant text to supplement my other studying. At first glance, this book seems too limited in scope and difficult to understand how and where to integrate and understand the material. However, after studying other resources and taking a closer look at this book, one sees that this text is anything but limited. This book helped tie together many loose facts from my other studying and also, due to the many charts and tables, repeats key concepts and ideas that by the end of my studying, these phrases were etched into my memory ready or the TEST ITSELF. Thus, I highly recommend this book to anyone who will seriously study other resources as well as this book because I found that, alone, this book does not help at all, but, together with other sources, it proves to be a unique way to tie in and bridge together seemingly unrelated facts and topics to give you a better overall understanding of what fits in where. So, buy this book if you are seriously going to study the correct way!
