    What are good books to use for a General Surgery AI (sub-I)? Do the books for the 3rd year clerkship (i.e. Lawrence, Recall) provide adequate info of what I'm expected to know at that level, or is it better to study from something more advanced?

    Thanks for the input! :)

    Also consider the Mount Reid Handbook for your AI. I still find it useful.

    may be a dumb question, but why wouldn't you use the same books on your AI as you did for clerkship? (unless you've memorized them all)

    LOL

    jakstat... not a dumb question... You are often required to know certain information in greater detail with more specificity... also there is more learning of post op care and operative technique in the AI. So a very general clerkchip text may not be enough.

    Um, was this supposed to be a link?

    Thanks for the advice, everyone. And no, I haven't quite memorized ALL of Lawrence yet. ;)
