    Its part of the pretest series.

    Did any of you use this and can give their 2 cents on it.

    used a bunch of pretest books for questions during classes, but couldn't tell you what they looked like because they were all pirated PDF's and i skipped the cover pages.

    I used it during my anatomy course (but I think it was an earlier version with histo and embryo as well). The questions were much harder than BRS or most of the other standard review books.

    i found that this book was somewhat esoteric and just not worth your time. as far as the usmle goes, FA or kaplan books are probably all you need for anatomy

    Hmm, I just picked up the Pretest Physiology book and had the same reaction. WTF? The questions all seemed tricky and not that relevant to understanding of the subject...kind of a waste of time.

    getting 50-60% correct in pretest physio is doing really good. At my school, scoring in this range equaled a high B or an A on our course exams.

    Don't get too freaked out by it.

    The anatomy/histo pretest book really helped me out on my anatomy nbme exam. Helped me ace it. I use the pretest series to help me study for my shelf exams, but also along with other sources. I've heard this series isn't good at all for boards prep though, haha.
