I got the Robbins, but I find it's pretty hard to get 'concise' information from the book, everything is so drawn out.

ANy suggestions for something a bit better? :(

Did you get Big Robbins or Baby Robbins? Baby Robbins is a lot easier to swallow. It's called "Robbins Basic Pathology" the Big Robbins is "Pathologic Basis of Disease." Try out the little one.

Nothing beats the Big Robbins in Pathology. I used it for both my classes and the exams (including the uinversity exams). The subject matter is too good and it shall not let you down ANYWHERE, be it exams or real life ! :thumbup:

Get the Pocket Companion to Robbins PBD (we call it "Baby Robbins" and the Basic Path one "Medium Robbins"). It's actually like the stuff you want from PBD in bullet form.

I used big robbins as a reference and BRS Path a lot both for exams and shelf/step1. Also thought the path questions on Kaplan's QBank were helpful... wish I'd thought of it sooner than 2 months before shelf exam! :)
