USMLE Books The International Medical Graduate's Best Hope

The International Medical Graduate's Best Hope is a book written specifically for IMGs and FMGs like us who are willing to understand who things work to get into residency in USA.

I purchased the book and I just finished reading it.

I have to say that the book is good only for those who do not know anything about the US health care system. Otherwise, people with some knowledge will not get benefit from it, I think.

Apart from few tips on the Interview and the ranking process, this book is safely counted as useless.

Bottom line, Do not buy it unless you are completely clueless. Even then, perhaps reading few threads in this website will get you the knowledge in that book and even better as it's updated and interactive!
