First Aid for the USMLE Step 1, 2010 (First Aid USMLE) Reviews

Review by Wilson:

I just got my FA 2010 yesterday. Here are the differences I noticed when compared to the 2008 edition:

1. A few of the colored pictures are new and they incorporated a lot of gray colored pictures inside the notes. In the evolution of MI, for example, they have real pictures instead of drawn pictures in the 2008 edition.

2. Some of the information are converted to table and graph format, which I liked. And they labeled some of the old charts and graphs for easier understanding.

3. In terms of new information, I think anywhere from 1-5 % are new, depending on section. In the cardio section, for example, half a page of vascular tumors are added.

Overall I would buy it if I still have more than a few months to study for the exam.

Review by L. Chavez:

First Aid has it all covered. I use USMLE world, and annotate my first aid. Some people sit and read first aid, but it’s not really a book to sit and read, as there is no text, mostly figures, charts and factoids. But it contains most of what you need to know, and there is space to scribble in the things you learn from the Q-bank. This edition is updated, terrific, and spot-on for boards. Included are reviews of other study materials for board exams which I found to be very useful. This book and a Q-bank, I’d stick with World or Kaplan, are all you truly need. I think going through both Q-banks would be more worthwhile than reading more board prep books. Other review books are useful during your coursework though. (I made the mistake of ordering USMLE consult, mostly 1-step as opposed to the 2 or 3 step questions you find on Step 1 and it doesn’t lock you out of other computer programs, so it’s easy to get distracted, and twice it erased my practice tests. Cheap, but not worth it, despite the great names listed as contributors.)

First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 2009: A Student to Student Guide (First Aid USMLE) Reviews

Review by Tom Swift:

My strategy with First Aid – I figured out which books were used to make First Aid (I listed them below) and then I read those books to get the explanations that First Aid is lacking. I took notes in First Aid from these books. At the end of my studying, I had one comprehensive source with all my notes. I was able to review this once in the last few weeks before the exam.

**Use the shortest edition of these you can find (there just isn’t enough time for anything longer)**

Lange Micro and Immuno

Lange Pharmacology

Costanzo’s Physiology (NOT the BRS book)

Lippincott’s Biochemistry

High Yield Gross Anatomy (older version because it was shorter)

High Yield Neuroanatomy

BRS Behavioral Sciences

HY Biostats

HY Embrology (old version, shorter only 50 pages)

I memorized First Aid (and my notes) word for word. I opened up First Aid and wrote the first page on a piece of paper. Then I closed the book and tried to write the page from memory. Then I repeated this over and over until I could do the page from memory. It took maybe half and hour per page. Then I periodically reviewed what I had memorized (the next day, a week later, etc). This was very painful, but I think memorization is necessary. You will forget some things before the exam, but you have to try to memorize First Aid in my opinion to do really well.

I decided on USMLE Rx as my Qbank because it contains all the First Aid facts and I wanted reinforcement on those. Maybe this worked I don’t know. As far as a quality I thought it was pretty good but I have heard the others are good also.

It really helped me to pick a system – say Cardio – and do all of the studying from that area. So I did Cardio Anatomy, Phys, Path, etc. etc. and the USMLE Rx questions from that area all at once. It really helped me get a “critical understanding” so to speak of the subject.

I scored above a 260/99 with this (I also used Goljan quite a bit in addition to First Aid). I am sure anyone else can as long as they are motivated enough.

Review by Dr. Digdug:

First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 books have been the core component of many medical student’s study kit for the first board exam. The 2009 edition is no different. There are some updates, some changes from the 2007 version (the oldest one I have), but the clear layout and the characteristic style of the First Aid books have been untouched. Concepts are presented in nibbles of paragraph-sized information–easy to study and absorb.
