USMLE Books What about Toronto Notes 2012 Pediatrics Section For Step 2 CK??

I have found Toronto Notes are great for clinical rotations....It is really great notes.....but I need your experience about this notes for step 2 ck especially Pediatrics??? ....Do they cover most of the concepts for pediatrics questions in step 2 ck especially uworld questions ??....OR Kaplan Pediatrics??????.....

.. BTW I don't love Kaplan series especially Internal Medicine (I don't have experience with Kaplan Pediatrics)) <Step Up to Medicine is the best for Internal Medicine..I love the bulleted outline ..Step Up to medicine new 3rd edition cover most(may be all) of the uworld internal medicine questions >...
.. Thanks a lot

Hi,
it's probably late to answer your Q, but for others having the same Q I try to answer it

If you like bullet format (like me) and hate to read long paragraphs of text like me), Toronto Notes is a great resource)

How I used it: carry-on during clerkship, when patient presented (or after left the exam room) I read what I felt I was missing in my knowledge, usually about to 1-2 diseases related to the patient presentation.

+
TN are well organized, in bullet format, SHORT. One have to read to get the knowledge, but with the rotations, there is little time (and not always you can concentrate) in med school. I would not be able to read Nelson's pediatric in Med school, and I would not be able to read any shorter textbook during rotations. TN are short, yet comprehensive.

-
Reading TN is not enough. I combined it with pediatric cases and questions. This combination worked well
