Great NCs for high yield level 1 review. I much preferred using these NCs to the Micro Made Ridiculously Easy book. The flow charts at the beginning of each section were great for the big picture.
Those cards are amazing!!! Im preping for my step 1 this june and I take these cards with me everywhere, on the train, at the gym. Very well clinically oriented!
These cards have been very helpful in my Step 1 preparation. They really only cover the important pathogens, pretty much in line with what First Aid covers.
They’re nicely organized, with a road map before each group – a card containing a flow chart with all the RNA viruses before the actual RNA virus cards, for example.
They have a clinical vignette on one side with a picture, usually an animation of what you would see on culture. Better description of the bug, associated disease(s), treatment, etc. on the back.
Overall I really like these.
The flashcards follows my micro prof’s microbe exactly. Its a very simple read with clear and concise illustrations. I wish i got it earlier.
These cards are simply great and are a significant improvement over the previous edition. Each card presents a concise summary of the organism and the diseases associated with it. Color micrographs of disease features are especially helpful for board review or medical school microbiology. I found these to be especially useful in conjunction with Medical Microbiology Made Ridiculously Simple.
I heard about these cards from a med student a year older than me who said that the way the information is presented on the cards is the best way to know micro for step 1. I use them in conjunction with my current micro class and find them very helpful so far for quick reviews of what I’ve just studied. As a stand alone product they probably aren’t has helpful, but used with other resources they will be a good review for when intense board studying happens this summer for me. A great supplement, but not the primary source material for your learning.
Bought these for my micro block during the first year of medical school along with at least half of my classmates. They are a great compact summary of the majority of micro you need to know as a first year medical student. As I’m starting to organize for studying for Step 1, I know these are going to be an invaluable resource for reviewing information from last year. They are convenient, portable, and condense a large topic into a manageable work load. Must have for medical students.
-Color coding for gram positive, gram negative etc. is very helpful
-Organization flow chart cards at the beginning of each section were also very helpful in creating a framework for studying
-Every card is numbered so you can take out the ones you need and still figure out where to put them back
-Classic clinical case presentations are included on each card
-Cards are easy to write on and have enough free space to annotate with additional information from lectures etc.
I liked these cards a lot, but they are difficult to study from as flash cards because there is so much information on each card. I would use them more as a text book than flash cards.
