Drug Pharmacology for Step 2 CK

Hello,

I am planning to take step 2 before step 1, and I seem to have some trouble with the drugs. I am memorizing drugs in MTB 2 & 3 but UW asks outside this at a lot of times. Is the pharma in mtb2&3 and UW enough for the exam or do I need an additional resource?

if yes, what are short resources that I can use given that I am planning to take my exam in 2 months and still have a lot to do.

I'd suggest you getting FA for step 1. In it there's a table with a list of common drugs and their side effects. That is a must do in your case, as you havent done step 1 yet. Apart from that, any drug you come across in UW you don't know about, make sure you read FA step 1 atleast about it the particular drug group. Only way you'll familiarise yourself.
