Though I use First Aid, i think medessentials is good too, after taking a look at it yesterday in the bookstore. Its really like a mini kaplan, exact same diagrams and everything. And everything is in table form.

I guess what step1 is doing is to promote to people a good but underused book. Its not as famous as first aid of course, but that doesnt mean it dont work.

I did not insert the link to Amazon, this is done by moderators
They are linking whatever books mentioned in this website to Amazon

I posted in the feedback forum and they replied have a look at this thread

Default not trying to offend

Totally did not mean to offend, sorry , but Kaplan med essentials is good but too lenghty for me , all this reading is making my brain hurt, and i dont know much about PC except that lots people are trying to make money off from us, but if its the moderators i guess its ok i mean they have to pay for the domain name... why dont i go click that link
