Drug Need Katzung and trevor's Pharmacology Exam and board review 9th edition

I was just wondering if anybody had the .pdf of Katzung and Trevor's Pharm exam and board review 9 edition, I've got the 8th edition but i've heard the 9th edition is even more well organized than the 8th and obviously Katzung's books are always up to date with the current happenings so you can expect to see some weird drugs on the USMLE a few of which you might not have heard of! so please let me know if someone does have the 9th edition of the book, I will be very grateful to you! thanks again

You need side effects and mechanisms more than the latest drugs in the class... remember many doctors are still using older drugs they know well rather than new shiny ones

That being said - know the new classes that have new mechanisms like, for example:

a) streptogramins and
b) Incretin based therapies (GLP-1 mimetics - exenatide and DPP4 antagonists - gliptins) for diabetes.

These types of drugs are not only fair game -they are a good USMLE target. Plus, they are HUGE news in current clinical use.

Also, if you make sure you know every drug in Kaplan *and* first aid, I think you're well on your way. Focus on say genetics and immunology too.

So do you recommend kaplan and FA for pharm? is that more than enough? I thought you'd need an external source too!

and where am I to find these new drug classes that you are talking about, please refer me to some text so I can get a handle on it too! thanks

Oh while we're on the subject, for genetics I heard some people tell me to do HY cell and molecular biology, but i seems too in depth for a USMLE review, what do you recommend? Immuno I believe is sufficient with review of micro and immuno by Warren Levinson (lange)....and its a damn good review for micro also!

People who have taken the exams previously and have done well recommend Kaplan + FA. Of course there will be as many books as you can think of and each will have some additional point to them (which is why they are still in the market) but the trick is not to go behind all the information but use the standard information and apply it. When you start doing some of the test banks before exam, they will add on your knowledge and it will be something more of recent stuff. I would recommend you to do the basic standard books like Kaplan and FA and then add information from question banks. This is my opinion and you can see if it works for you.

I agree with the don... The qbanks will fill in the gaps. You're of course right to try and read as much information as possible, but 2010 Kaplan (the course if not in the supplementary material) includes both of the drug classes I mentioned and I think FA 2010 includes references to them too. That being said you must focus your studies to 1 maybe 2 major sources per subject so that your understanding of the concepts are clear. Once that is done, the minute details come from the qbanks and the rest is up to your luck and God..

As you proceed through the material though, you'll see your score increase immensely in the qbank (do random, timed blocks) then make sure you analyse the explanations very very carefully. Make sure you do this for both the questions you get right *and* the questions you get wrong - in other words, treat the qbank as another book to read. That should be it Its a formula that seems to have achieved 99's for many of our colleagues on these boards...

Good luck!
