   Great review book
Myself have been pretty impressed with this book so far. The format is small in that for each disease it lists a nice explanation of pathophys and then proceeds with historypresentation, diagnostic tools and treatmentmanagement. I have used it along with UWorld and so far it has had the most information to answer the questions. In fact, some of the diseases seem to have very similar verbage to the explanations in UWorld, which makes me wonder if the writers got smart and started using UWorld to help organize the information in First Aid. My only complaint would be that the actual text is quite large in the book, and there is not much free space to take notes on the pages. For the next issue, I would suggest increasing the font size to give more room on each page to take notes. I also ordered mine from Amazon Prime and did not have any issues with the printing of the pages, as mentioned by some others.
   This needs to be re-edited. No errata I can find
I will never write reviews. This is probably my first ever, but I felt compelled as a medical student. This book is not to be bought. I found defects and inconsistencies in diagnostic criteria, formulas. Another way to learn is to buy something else. I have also been unable to find an errata for this edition.
   Missing A lot of Information, Very Disappointing...
It is missing a lot of information. You will fight on UWorld's behalf. Very disappointing considering they made First Aid step 1, which is amazing. On the bright side, there is a lot of room to write notes and all diseases and treatments not included in this book.
   Much more written to the style of ck questions. Like UWQB.
I think that FA for CK really stepped it up a notch for this version. Let me be very specific ''. They give the best workup, most accurate workup first. Has few of the multitude of errors found in MTB2, found in MTB2. Many of the themes in UWQbank were actually nicely reviewed in this book ; I was shocked!! Impressed to see the first aid ck take a huge step forwards. I have friends who read together MTB23 to try to maximize Step2 - Score. This book has the equivalent of both.
   Good organization. Helps to compartmentalize info
I spent over a week with this book and I like it so far. It is well organized and goes into a good amount of detail for most high yield topics that will be tested on Step CK. It may not be as perfect as first aid for step 1, but as far as resources go out there, this is pretty easy to use. The book also contains some mnemonics, key facts and even short questions in the side columns. The book also has a lot of tables that compare and contrast similar processes of disease. Overall, I think it is a solid resource to use throughout the 3rd year.
   Useful brief Sum but not as comprehensive and detailed as Yale-G First Aid
Pros : Useful short summary of common diseases with many figures. Cons Not Covering As Many Subjects and not as Up-to-Complete and detailed as Yale-G First Aid Crush USMLE Step 2CK n 3. The psychiatry, surgery and some serious diseases, such as diabetes, CAD, DM, breast cancer, prostate cancer... are much better in Yale-G's.
