so quick q....

I'm looking through this AnL OB/GYn q book. The sections on embryology, anatomy, histology, and path are quite extensive. I'm really pressed for time. Are these sections just in there to give some 'background' knowledge or are they really HY for the shelf?

Thanks...

crunched for time.

If really pressed for time you can get the basics of what you need in First Aid for USMLE Step 2. There is an OBGYN section in there in a concise 40 pages. It's the perfect alternative if you're pressed for time. Blueprints is not the way to go if you are short on time. I found Blueprints too long with too tiny font and too boring. I preferred to Beckmann as my reading source.

Agreed. Blueprints is bare boned and easy to read in my opinion. if you're short on time at least read blueprints blue boxes....can do that in a couple of hours.

Even though Beckmann is longer. The chapters tell a story and are engaging. This is why I preferred it. For someone short on time, I do not think Blueprints is something they can get through quickly.
