ill begin my IM clerkship soon
so i'll use these resources to prepare for it & i need your opinion

kaplan IM as my main resource (the one i'll read it over and over for the shelf)
davidson's principles & practice of medicine as my textbook (i'll read most important chapters from it like cardio & pulmonary )
harrison manual of medicine as a pocket and during rotation

for qs i'll use
mksap 5

and i may (if i have time) take alook at case file but it is not a priority

i'm just going to begin my 4th year (the clinical practice ) and after i see various resources i choose the mention above
so is this good way to prepare ??
