Passing the USMLE

by Ahmad Wagih Abdel-Halim

Preparing for the USMLE can be a stressful and time consuming task for any medical student. The key elements of a successful review program are clarity, brevity and memory-assisting consistency. High yield information is the name of the game in preparing for exams. The author of Passing the USMLE: Basic Science has taken great pains to make complicated ideas as simple as possible and to incorporate the basic science of medicine with the clinical applications of patient care. Data is presented so the reader takes away as much as possible from every word, every sentence, and every minute spent studying. Maximum retention of information is assured through the use of bulleted lists, charts, tables, and full color clinical photographs.
