USMLE Books Comprehensive USMLE Reference

i mean, is there an official course (book) of what we should know. im not talking about exercise books and sample questions. im talking about what to study? cz what we studied in our med schools differs from one uni to another. so is there some sort of well-defined courses/books to STUDY and not to practice for exercises..and if we do these, will we be sure that w covered everything that might appear? like how deep should we go in each subject? is there an official book that covers what exactly were expected to know for the usmle?

thanks a lot

There is no such book or course.

The USMLE questions are written by hundreds of University professors and everyone of them is free to ask about anything he/she thinks is important.

The official content outline and description can be found in the official USMLE website here

Since the amount of information is so vast, it's unrealistic that you can read and study every little bit of basic sciences, nobody can do that.

Therefore, companies and authors try there best in making courses and publishing books that are High Yield which means you are highly likely to be asked about these facts but nothing is guaranteed for sure.
