Default FA15

FA is hands down the best
Although it is important to highlight that none of these comprehensive reviews by themselves are enough

Recommend complementing with Anki flashcards

Default "Dermatology for the USMLE" should be added

High quality dermatology pictures coming out of May Clinic. Interdisciplinary review book that teaches you dermatology and Internal Medicine.

Great tool for Step 1,2 and 3. Hoping more like this come out soon! Awesome read and helped me bumped my score!

I highly recommend it. Check it out for yourself.

Dermatology for the USMLE by Alvaro J. Ramos (hope you can find it online...it wont let me post the link..trying to spread the good news).

Good luck and good vibes to all!
