    Does anyone know what review materials are good for COMLEX Step 2? Also, how does this exam differ from Step 1 in regards to types of questions? Should I be reviewing basic pharmacology, pathology, etc., or is it basic clinical knowledge type questions? Thanks

    I was told by the residents and interns at my hosp that Swanson's Family Practice Review is good. They used it to study for their Part III of boards. They said it is rather intense, but that if I could get thru it, I would be ready for part II.

    I am thinking this one will be more clinical-based, as opposed to the pharm and anatomy on Part I.

    Once again, I am forced to agree with my wise and savvy collegue Billie. I would also recommend the blue "OMT Review" book by Robert G. Savarese. It's a pretty complete OMT review with a practice exam in the back.

    William,

    How much different is the OMT on step 1 from step 2. Are the question similar?
    Will the normal "good" USMLE step 2 review books also suffice for the COMLEX step 2?
