USMLE Books Extra effort for Immunology on the Step 1?

Recently i've heard that the Step 1 is incorporating more and more immunology in the exam, I was wondering if anyone went through Rapid review Micro and Immunology.....had a couple of friends recommend it to me who recently took the exam, they say its a good concise review for immuno (micro being sufficient in First aid)

Any opinions? and does anyone have a pdf copy of the book? preferably the 3rd edition....thanks guys

No need to worry, the new sylabus content is covered already in Kaplan Immunology Lecture Notes, it's more than enough

I would say... doing this following qn along with UW and NBMEs will be sufficient for your step.

Guys!!!.. these are not NBMEs or UW. These are my collections from forums. Some qns you heve seen them b4 some you don't. I believe these qns will help you understand and make you feel more confident in that particular subject.

"Practice make you perfect" - do more qns and score more points on your exam.
