Can't beat BRS physiology for the boards. I'd even reccomend it for first year studying purposes.

I reccomend for regular test: Costanza. She wrote a non-BRS reg text book which covered 95% of everything I was taught in cass.

I take my Costanza book, and lay my BRS Path book on top of it.

Particularly effective when both are wet, so the pages take on an almost translucent quality.

Seriously though, I use pathophys for the boards and wards.

Jalby, you'll get more height by putting 700 pages of Guyton on top of both!:rolleyes:

BRS Phys was awesome. That's all I read when I took phys as a 1st year and did well in the class, having never had any physiology in undergrad. If you're familiar with the book, it's a quick read to study for Step 1. I think last summer I spent 1 day reading it, and considered that to be my phys prep for Step 1.

I think Costanzo is great, either the review text or her more complete text.
Pathophys for Board and Wards has been useful too.

Anyone have a suggestion for a good OB/GYN book that is less detailed than Lange?
