First Aid First Aid 2012 Has Too Many Mistakes!

Hello everyone!

I'm just about to start studying for my USMLE step 1 , I was going to buy First Aid 2012 but when I read all the reviews on amazon I decided to consider it further because they all said it had way too many mistakes. What do you guys think? Should I still buy it? Is there another option like step up to step 1?

Thank you very much!

Wait a few months for the new FA 2013. It should come out early next year. In the beginning you will dislike it, but as time passes by, you will fall in love with it.

Don't forget to check their website for errata. There is a good 20 page of correction in order for the FA 2012 edition.

Ya i think after errata also there are some mistakes but as minimal as 1-3%. Errata contain most of it but as people say. If you have time. Its better to wait for 2013 FA.

as KoolKiller said. Also, if you are doing Goljan Rapid Review for Pathology, there is an errata for that too. It can be found by searching on google. Some people do not know that one exists. I felt like putting it out there while we are on the subject.
