    Has anyone else ordered/used this book? How long did it take to get to you?

    Do any residents/attendings have opinions on if the book is good or not? I've seen residents at my school using it.

    It's a great resource - I used it as a med student and that's the book most of the residents carried. The website seems a little weird, but it's legit. Takes about a week to ship. Are you Army HPSP?

    I am not. I had originally interviewed at and wanted to attend USUHS, thus the name.

    Probably still have a future in the military eventually.

    Weider got me through the in service exam and the written boards. Definitely get it. It's extremely condensed, but every word in it is important to know.

    Is it written to a level where it would be useful to a subI or does it assume too much basic knowledge?

    Perfect for a sub-internship, especially when you're rotating in clinic with attendings you're trying to impress. I sneaked a peek at certain pages routinely between clinic rooms.
