    Is this a better source of review material and/or a better presentation than other such books like Starr's, Anesthesiology Secrets, etc.?

    I realize problem books are also important, but I'm trying to decide if it's worth the $ to get Big Blue in addition.

    TIA,

    SW

    Big blue is great for review but not as a primary resource during residency. I used big blue almost exclusively with Faust and Morgan/Mikhail when I needed clarification. The real advantage is taking the Jensen's course where you will see many of the actual questions verbatim. I think I saw about 10% of the Jensens questions on the exam.

    Big Red (for the orals) is a rehashed big blue. About 50% or more of the material is exactly the same as Big Blue. Still I used it, listened Audio Red, and took his review course.

    Yes, he is several thousand dollars richer because of me but nothing beats having the words "Board Certified" on my CV.
