        First Aid alone isn't enough. The High Yield books are pretty good for supplimental information. I also used the Pathology, Physiology and Biochemistry books from the NMS series, and some of the Underground Clinical Vignettes. First Aid doesn't put things in context, which I found annoying. I used the other books for context and filling in some of the gaps in First Aid.

        Good luck.
