I have my first derm away elective in about 3 weeks and haven't had much exposure to derm. What are some good books to glance over/read before the elective starts so I don't look incompetent?

I can take care of that. :)

Derm Secrets is pretty good for info. Fitzpatrick's makes for a great atlas, imo. I think you should be fine with these two books.

Lookingbill is a great introduction to basic dermatology for a med student. Some say too simplistic but you need to walk before you can run. Fitzpatrick will fill in most of the holes.
