I'm trying them myself since the last week, they're only good for memorizing info....but the way they present everything seems like they're deficient in a lot of things, and their "trial" subs has questions which have no clinical correlation.

they do have tidbits that i recognize from goljan and FA but not a lot, then again they have some info which is presented in a better manner than FA (which you will have you look up in FA, they won't strike out at you at first)

all in all its a good change if you don't feel like staring at your book once in a while or if you feel that memorizing everything will work for you but I take it as a review for the day, I complete my stuff for the day and then review with those flashcards and then do questions....

hope this helps

I've been using it for a couple months now and like it alot. It's true that some of the questions don't have clinica correlates, but i think that's because it's meant as a memorizing tool and not necessarily a qbank. It's a really great supplement to FA and Goljan.

I notice that the content of flashcards in Gunner Training is pretty smilar to FA and sometimes presented in better way. I am getting impressed with this stuff. It's a great review tool.
