Hi ya'll, A quick reality check--my school has 'required' one or more voluminous textbooks for each rotation, and I was wondering how many people actually buy/read them? I have peds first, and they've got Oski's and Nelson's listed--any preferences? Are these at all useful for shelf exams and step 2? Or do most people use the large texts at the library or something, and then buy board review books? Thanks alot for your help!
