hi. i'm starting rotations soon and i was wondering - what is like the best order you should take your rotations, you feel.
- and if there are books you need for all your rotations and if theres any specific books you need for specific rotations.
- also what can i expect from rotations, i c people talking about tests?, is it like a shelf you have at the end of each rotations, if sombody could tell me more detail about this or point me in the direction where i can find more info. would be greatly appreciated

thx.

It doesn't really matter what order you do your rotations in. The only consensus is that the surgery shelf is easier if you've taken medicine (since thats what mostly is on it). Other than that choose whatever order tickles your pickle. As far as books go, search the threads that talk about the shelf. People share what they used for study materials. And yes, generally people take a shelf exam at the end of each rotation which is standardized. Some schools use their own made up exams but most use NBME shelf exams.

This will all depend highly on your school. If you don't have a school-Wiki or some kind of MS3 document that gets passed around every year, find some upperclassmen to talk to.
