Hi, I am about to start my first rotation in Jan in medicine (my school is on a diff system w/ 1.5 yrs for basic sciences). I have had many books recommended and have read a few of the threads with debates on best books. My dilemma is picking a few books that do not overlap each other much in content or purpose (q? books, review books, etc). I am trying to pick a good combo of books from these that have been recommended including MKSAP2, Case Files for Medicine, NMS, Blueprints, Pocket Medicine, St. Francis Guide to IM, Step-Up and FIRST AID for Medicine. I do not know how to mix and match to get the most out of my time and money. I would prefer to only pick 2-4 since I will be using uptodate and Harrison's for more in-depth on patients. Here was my initial inclination, MKSAP2, Pocket Medicine, and St. Francis (or maybe Step-Up). Thanks for any help.
