    Try Advanced Life Support for the USMLE II. Short, small, inexpensive, and has great information.

    I recommend Boards and Wards (Ayala and Spellberg). This was the only book that I reviewed for Step II, and I did well on the exam.

    Boards and Wards is awesome. I didn't get it till my last rotation of 3rd year and wish I'd had it all year. Plus I saw a lot of interns using it to review for step 3 as well.

    This one has great charts and bullet lists for quick reviews while waiting for the elevator, waiting for the attending to come for rounds, etc. It fits easily into a white coat pocket, although you won't have much room left for anything else. At 350+ pages its a little heavy, but you can balance it out with a Pre-Test or the Washington Manual on the other side.:)
