MKSAP 16 consists of well-researched textbook content and hundreds of figures, charts and tables that will enhance your learning experience MKSAP 16’s original and high-quality questions evolve out of case-based studies and patient scenarios based on the latest evidence. Each question will challenge your decision -making, help you find out where you are strong and where you could benefit from more knowledge, and ultimately enhance your patient care.

This has a great set of books and questions which are very comprehensive. The price is around $500 from the American College of Physicians. I like MKSAP because it has 11 books on each subject area, each with about 100 pages of text, then followed by questions and detailed answers. For example the “general internal medicine” book is a large print 250 page softcover – 135 pages are text with large diagrams, tables, etc. The remainder of the work is 168 multiple choice questions and detailed answers to each. And the bonus is that each book/answers is eligible for CME units, which for example California requires 25/year. The book I just described is worth 24 CME. This can also be applied for the ABIM MOC credit, which I have already done. In my opinion MKSAP is unbeatable. I do better with a text like format, as opposed to an abbreviated review version. I think if a person works through MKSAP then you will be well prepared for the boards and become a much better clinician.
Great reference and study material. Could not have done it without them. Comprehensive guide to each division of IM for review.
Its a good starting point for review, to supplement your study aids. Most residents have found this to be helpful for studying for boards.
MKSAP is the standard material for Internal Medicine Board Review. Topics that are discussed in these books are likely to be tested in the exam. Moreover every subject has 100+ questions at the end of the book so you do not need to purchase separate Q-bank. Many people have passed ABIM just studying the MKSAP.
MKSAP 16 has lot of changes from MKSAP 15 and the questions are new as well.
I find it annoying that people are giving poor reviews to MKSAP 16 because they had some issues with the seller!! Please give poor review to the seller not these books!
Update: I passed the boards using these books and the questions.
