not much cardiology and the stuff that was asked was fairly straight forward. it's not worth it trying to learn all the nitty gritty for total anomalous pulmonary venous return (not even sure if thats right ) or hypoplastic left heart syndrome.
I felt like I picked up enough of that in my 3 weeks outpatient clinic. You could probably get a couple of extra points by formally memorizing it, but you'll get within two answer choices if you use simple common sense.
I had MAYBE 1 or 2 cards questions on my peds shelf, and they were fairly straightforward things if i remember, no zebras.
Yes it is worth remembering the devo milestones, but it would be tough to memorize them, especially since there are only going to be a few questions on the topic. Know things like when kids sit up without support, when they crawl, walk, etc., and when they start making sounds and words.
I have the kaplan qbook and i felt that those questions were good prep for the shelf. They were maybe slightly easier than the real thing, but packed with useful info.
