I got these cards today, and went through the antimicrobials section, and thought the cards themselves were amazing. I used them after watching the antimicrobials section in Kaplan’s video series, and I thought they were great in helping me review the material and retain the knowledge. The cards have a bunch of clinical vignettes, which I think is a great way to prepare for the USMLE step 1.
However, the build of the cards is pretty lacking. They are a bit flimsier than normal blank notecards you’d buy, but a bit sturdier than normal printing paper (not saying much). I would’ve given it a 5 out of 5 if they were printed on paper more like other flashcards out there (i.e. Netters, Rubin’s Pathology, etc)
I’ve been using these for my pharmacology class, and they’re really great. so far we’ve covered anti-hypertensives, anti-asthmatics, heart failure, and dyslipidemia drugs, and these have really helped. These are a quick way to study, they have down the important facts and are not laminated, so if there’s something missing I can just write it in and make them really personalized. I’m glad i got these, i only wish i’d gotten them sooner.
I think this product is pretty good. The thickness of the paper is good in my opinion, if it was a thick as a commercial flashcard you would have a considerably larger and heavier set of flashcards. They are thin enough to not be too bulky and thick enough to hold themselves up and not fold like a piece of paper. I like the cases. I think there could be a little more information on the card, but again, it’s advertised as flashcards, review, not an exhaustive first look at pharm for the boards. It definitely has alot of high yield information. It has a few flowcharts at the beginning of every section and it has an index. There is space to add information. I think it is great for what it is. If you want more, you need a textbook.
