For practice exams, I just used NBME. For books, i liked the following:
Clinical microbiology made ridiculously simple
How the Immune System Works (i forget the author, very short and good background)
First Aid as main book
High Yield Embryology
BRS review series Neuroanatomy
I can't remember the rest right now, but those were the main ones. Essentially, I found that having a thorough understanding (i.e. reading the entire lippincott's biochem book) was better for me than using outline-based review books.
Thanks for ur speedy response! Just ordered the immuno book, I needed one and this is definitely short and has great reviews on amazon too!
Final question, did u read Constanzo alongside ur physio course or just for board prep (I assume u meant Big Constanzo and not BRS physio)...
