rxfudd said:So I was lucky enough to get Pre-Test and Blueprints for Peds as a hand-me-down from an M4, and I've been looking through old threads to see if it's enough. Nearly every thread says "BP is not enough for the shelf, you need more", but no one ever says what that "more" is. So what's the consensus? First Aid? NMS? Recall? What exactly does more mean, and what has everyone used for this rotation?
Ralph Wiggum said:Many people swear by Blueprints. I was not as impressed, although I loved it for Medicine. The book that I loved was a British book called Illustrated Textbook of Pediatrics (Lissauer and Clayden). It is about 300 pages, but is easy to read and has a ton of great pictures. I was able to go through it very easily during my 6 week peds rotation, and I did great on my shelf exam. Harriet Lane is a great reference book, but you don't really need to buy it unless you plan on going into peds. For my palm, I used 5 minute pediatric consult which was great on rounds. Hope this helps.
