I personally love this book ( though I haven't given ck yet ) but you will still need to read the MTB's..its in question/ answer format and has all the high yield info only but if you want to review everything in like 3-4 days you might find it useful..its very popular with the AMG's..

I LOVED Step 1 Secrets. Period.
It was epiphany after epiphany of understanding topics I've never got before.

I was disappointed with Step 2 Secrets, but maybe it's because there's nothing hard to understand about "what's the best diagnostic test" or "what's the best therapy".
XYZ is best because it is, because studies say so. There's no unraveling feel like in Step 1 subjects.

But then there's the approach of Secrets. Alcoholism and Diabetes have their own chapter. Easy to browse, easy to carry.
Easily a top tier book for CK.
