USMLE Step 3 Triage reviews all the relevant knowledge needed to not just pass Step 3, but to excel at it. Written by a physician who has made a study of optimal preparation strategies for Step 3, the book reviews medicine in a concise, easily assimilated manner without skimming the important details. Each subject heading is specifically taken from the USMLE's own "problem/disease" list to avoid needless studying of unemphasized subjects and to focus on those relevant headings that will get the most exposure on the test. On those subjects such as diabetes, hypertension, statistics, and others that are heavily tested, extra emphasis is placed to allow the reader an in-depth and focused review of what is really important. Clinical tools and relevant facts are highlighted in each heading to ensure that clinical "pearls" are not missed. In applicable areas, authoritative guidelines are summarized and specifically stated so that the field's recommendations are easily known. The book is lavishly illustrated,and a unique full-color format highlights and organizes the material. For anyone preparing to take the USMLE Step 3, studying for a similar exam, reviewing for boards, or for simple re-exposure to general medicine, this is the book that will put you over the top!
