    I am a 4th yr, did well on rotations and here's my advice:

    Psych--Appleton and Lange (A & L) Q and A book, First Aid, Pre-Test
    ObGyne--First Aid (don't waste time w/ blueprints), A & L Q and A book
    Medicine--Step-up to Medicine, Pre-Test Medicine
    Neuro--Blueprints, Pre-Test
    Surgery--Pre-Test, Blueprints, consider Case Files if time
    ER--case files
    Peds--Blueprints, A & L Q and A, Pre-Test
    blueprints is too long for Ob, A & L Q/A for surgery has too many mistakes,
    The new 2006 Blueprints seem like the best thing to get if you're thinking that series. For neuro, several ?'s were straight out of the book
    ALSO: an excellent book for every rotation is Kaplan CK book, and Blueprints Step 2 Q and A (available for most specialties--this can get pricey though
