    I have been using it periodically during my prep. Its actually not bad at all. It gives one scenario, and goes into the pathophys, dx, rx, tx of the case.

    one caveat - its divided in to organ sytems like normal FA, so you'd have to come up with ur own system of how and when you want to fit it into ur prep



    drguy, if ur test is on MAY 17th, why dont u finish all ur reviewing and the week before the test, as your are looking thru FA to review, u can look thru this book also


    good luck
