Definitely one of the best books you can find in the market for the step 1.

When I read these two books, I alwasy feel like I am reading my own notes, which means the way the book is written is crystal clear and very easy to read. Frankly these books are way better written than Kaplan lecture notes (which I personally think is very messy and not that easy to follow). These books are also very good for the class as well. Honestly way better than any lecture note given in the class.

One weakness of these books is you really have to beef up the Anatomy, Embryology and Pharmaco parts. They are just not enough. Especially Anatomy and Embryo. Biochem, Micro, Physiology and Patho are more than enough, so just use any Anatomy, Embryo and Pharm book (Choose a thin book) to make your preparation complete. Don’t rely on these books for these areas.

Also, you have to use the First Aid as well because, stragely enough, some materials in the First aid are missing in these books. As these are way thicker than the First aid, so they are way more in detail, but, I don’t know why, some information is missing in these two books. Not that much info is missing, but still…;;;

Overall, I could understand why the author is so successful as a writer after I read these two books. They know how to write a clear explanation and organize the necessary info nicely.
