Lawrence Essentials of general surgery and Surg Recalltoehammer said:i was hoping some of you who have taken this shelf exam could give a little feedback, and say what you used to study for it. i have heard that almost half of my class fails this shelf on their first rotation of third year.

right now im using nms, case files, and first aid. this is what one of the ortho residents told me to use. essentials is like 400+ pages....
