I have just bought "First Aid Step 1" and going to spend the next two years basing my studies around it.

We do things a little differently in the UK and I'm pretty convinced having read the chapters on biochemistry in the First Aid book that the British system isn't good preparation for the Step 1 exam.

What review books do you recommend buying? Is Guytons physiology a good text for the USMLE, no mention has made of it, and I was under the impression that Guytons is a bestseller.

Hi. Guyton's is good for your classes, but for test prep for USMLE, a review book may serve you better. Try BRS Physiology.
