Which is better....I already haev Crush but there are rumors that one of these is the bomb (not going to tell you which one...i'm waiting for your replies)!




  #2

Please doctor tell me
about STRONG MEDICINE
Is it a book? I never heard about that? Tell me more, author, is it good?
Thanks so MUCH


  #3

Strong Med


  #4

Taky,

It is a review book. Kicks bootay.

here is a link:

www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/...usm-20/103-1269505-5169437

These new books are better than anything else on the market as far as general outline reviews. A small margin goes to Strong Med for completeness. Not too deep and not too shallow. First Aid can be too shallow at times. Many people were carrying Strong Med around the Kaplan center to use instead of the Kaplan references to look stuff up. Excellent for CCS.

If you bought both and got NMS and did USMLE World for MCQs you would not go wrong.
