    This Fourth Edition of Boards and Wards offers an essential review for medical students preparing for clinical rotations and for the USMLE Steps 2 and 3.

Numerous tables, full-color illustrations, and "buzzwords" aid in retention of facts. This edition also features increased level of content in ophthalmology, dermatology, and otolaryngology, as well as increased illustrations.

    A companion Website offers over 200 USMLE-style questions and answers: 75 (all new!) from the book and an additional 130 online-only.

    How is the book broken up, into clinical rotation sections? I.e family med, peds etc? Is it supposed to be a review after the end of M3 or read with every clinical rotation

    I have heard this book is essential when on rotations, any chance you can elaborate on what has been added to the 4th edition?

    Do you have any online versions of the book? Or do you have any versions where we can use it on our smartphones or other portable electronic devices?

    Hi! Boards and Wards comes with a companion website that offers over 200 USMLE-style questions and answers -- 75 from the book and an additional 130 online-only. A mobile component would be a great supplement for a new edition. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I heard the only major revision from the 3rd edition were changes in the Ophthalmology chapter. Will there be additional content added like maybe a separate Urology chapter or more detailed Medical and Legal section in future editions?

    Are radiographs included in the illustrations? I know radiology is included in testing, but I was curious if they are a part of the text and/or the questions as well.

    Is this book geared more toward prep for Step 2/3 or is it appropriate as a companion during rotations?

    I was wondering if the 200 USMLE-style questions and answers are written more towards USMLE 2 or 3. I am considering using this book next year for internship.

    Thanks!

    Glad to hear you are considering our text! Boards and Wards was developed for medical students preparing for clinical rotations and for the USMLE Steps 2 and 3 so it should meet your needs. Thanks!

    It sounds like some nice additions have been made. Is the book small enough to be kept in a white coat as a reference on the wards or is it meant to be more of a study aid for home?

    Hi, psychmedstudent! Boards and Wards is small enough to fit in a lab coat pocket and is perfect for reference on the wards.

    If you're interested in pocket-size books, you should check-out our Recall series -- it's a rapid-fire question-and-answer format, pocket-size text. Take advantage of our 20% discount -- http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=802445.

    Is this book sufficient as an introduction to each rotation or is it good enough for the main resource alone?

    Can you be more specific on how much "increased content" there is? (i.e. number of pages/topics/etc. added). I already own the earlier addition and need to decide if it is worth buying an updated copy of a book I already own rather than try a different source of information altogether.

    Is this updated boards and wards better for studying for step 2 or step 3? Or would you recommend it to an intern studying for in-service exams?
    Please sign me up for this raffle, thank you.
