PreTest sucks ASS for the shelf. This was my experience, anyway. It did have ~ 4 questions that appeared almost verbatim on my shelf, but by and large, the real shelf questions are more detailed and more confusing than the straightforward one-liners you find in PreTest.
Blueprints in Medicine has incredibly mixed reviews. I know personally at least 5 people who swear by it, and another 5 (including yours truly) who swear AT it; I found it tedious, elementary, and a waste of time.

I am also another person who hates blueprints in medicine as a primary source for info during your rotation. Why don't you check out NMS Medicine. It is more detailed(at times too much) but it contains many practice questions and I thought it covered all the topics well.
