BRS phys enough for ECGs for the Step?

    So I recently finished reading BRS phys (3rd ed.) and realized that it doesn't cover ECGs nearly as in depth as we did during my phys class.

    Is this because the boards don't go into depth with ECGs, or is this a weak point of BRS phys?

    FA has 2 pgs with 7 common ECGs. Should I supplement or not?

    Thanks.

    Definitely, first aid's probably enough for EKG's. They're not really emphasized on boards, just recognize the obvious stuff (a fib)
