Doody Review Services

Reviewer:Carol Scott-Conner, MD, PhD(University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description:This is the fifth edition of a review book designed to assist trainees preparing to take examinations, both the USMLE and various general surgical board examinations. A section about the best way to use the book introduces the material, and a sample USMLE-type test concludes the book. It is organized into the traditional subject areas and correct answers and a succinct one-paragraph rationale are given at the end of each section, a design that facilitates review. This replaces the edition published in 2003.
Purpose:The primary purpose is to assist students preparing to take the USMLE examination. A secondary purpose is to assist surgical residents preparing to take in-training examinations and the qualifying and certifying examinations of the American Board of Surgery. These are worthy objectives, and the book meets them admirably.
Audience:The review is primarily written for students and residents.
Features:The book does a particularly nice job of mimicking the current style of question used by the USMLE, where a short clinical vignette introduces a choice of options in diagnosis or therapy. It avoids the trap of resorting to strict recall-type questions. Illustrations are used throughout, both as part of the questions, and more extensively in the explanations.
Assessment:This compares quite favorably with other review manuals. Despite the comprehensive subject coverage, the manual is both portable and affordable. The rapid changes in surgical knowledge, as well as changes in exam question format, make a new edition quite welcome.
