    I'm torn as to what to use for pharm review for step 1. Lippincott seems too dense to read (taking the test in 1 month), although it's a good book. High Yield and First Aid pharm don't seem to have enough stuff...What are people using with success? I'm considering trying pharm cards now.

    Pharm Recall is excellent. I am using that along with lippincott's for reference.

    I think using first aid as the guide, and use pharm cards to fill in the rest of information. but you know, after a month of studying...you probably will only memorize what is in first aid.

    First Aid is all i'm using for pharm.

    i've been annotating it during our entire pharm course. it's now quite complete.

    im going with FA for pharm, micro , biochem and anatomy. i think FA is pretty high yield in these areas, enough that if you know the stuff in FA in these subjects, you should be able to do very well on those sections.
