Yup, I agree with this post. Pre-test is the best question book series out there for the shelves, but be sure to read up on your patients in Current Medical Diagnosis and Treatment. Besides prepping you for any pimping, it will help you do well on your shelf. If you have time to do more questions after finishing pretest, I know that Blueprints recently started offering a new overpriced question book. It's very overpriced because it offers very few questions for it's price, but the questions are decent. Many of classmates actually took advantage of our campus bookstore's 1 week return policy by purchasing the book and finishing the questions so that they could return the book before the 1 week period had passed. It only takes a few nights to get through. Good luck!Originally posted by PeterY
I think that pretest is ok for IM. MKSAP is generally good but can be too detailed sometimes. I can't imagine some of their management questions being asked on the shelf exam.
If you are in the middle of medicine, i would say just continue to try to learn based on the patients you are taking of and if you haven't already get a good general review book.
