Just saw this Amazon review: 5.0 out of 5 stars
Concise Revision and Infopacked Concentrated Dose of MCQ, February 11, 2011
--By Dr. Dhananjay

This review is from: Yale-G's Refined Clinical Review for the USMLE Step 2 & 3 (Paperback)
This is not a rambling page filler book. It is concise.
Exactly what you need for Step 2 & Step 3.
The author has taken significant efforts to produce this nice book.
"5 times" better than First Aid.
Master the Boards is a "Gold Standard" for passing.
This one is for those who want to score more than 90.


Hi Pego,

Pls what is the actual name of this Concise MCQ book by Dr DHANANJAY you talked about. Am having a had time finding it at Amazon.com

Thanks, pls reply soon.

I did one read of kaplan lecture notes + Master the Boards (twice) + UW + Kaplan Qbank and got a 99/267

I read the sample of Yale-G review and didn't like it at all

I also read some FA but was really disappointed by it. Didn't do NBME (waste of money)

Really awesome score Doctor. which MTB did you use? Step 2 Ck or step 3. please compare the two for me. thanks very much for your quick reply.

Master the Boards is a great book but is missing a lot of information. It is wonderful for last minute prep basically... I would highly recommend Step Up to Step 2. It has more info but unlike MTB, it doesn't tell you what's the best initial or the most accurate tests. For those quick reviews, MTB is great but to cover more info, Step Up to Step 2 is a lot better. Hope it helps

I've bought both from usmle-yaleg.com and amazon.com, and found the Yale-G's is more comprehensive/concise covering more than MTB2; MTB2 focuses on some high-yield data.
The two combined give me more confidence for doing UW-QB...

Learning a lot from the Yale-G's Review and this book and UWorld are my main sources. I have gone through the kaplan notes and lectures and this book is the perfect summary for those pressed for time but still need to get a competitive score. I love the BOLDED high yields. easy to read. The questions at the end of the chapter are very challenging but nail in the frequently missed or hard to grasp high yiled concepts.It is amazing to see how Yale-G successfully summarised all the disciplines in one book.

Both Yale-G's and MTB are excellent last 1-2 mo sum study before the ck2! Use FA only for the images (used book ok). Then UW Qb for high scores!
GL!

it's not necessary to spend so much in the 'learning ctr'. i did twice of the following and got 95:
Yale-g's refined clinical review (http://usmle-yaleg.com/YG-Rep1-web.pdf);
MTB 2CK;
UW.
i met many high-yield data in the exam from the above sources --very valuable.
GL!

Yale-G's seems to be the best for 2CK so far (50% for step3).
WHo can recommend the best for Step3?
Thanks!
