USMLE Books Loving MTB 2

Almost done with my first reading of Internal Medicine from MTB 2 along Kaplan, I realize that it pretty much contains all the important stuff from Kaplan + more in a way more organized way. That being said, I think I will need to read it atleast 1-2 more times before I can start UW. There is just a lot of stuff to know in terms of ''best initial', '' most specific'' for every disease. Seems like I have to review a lot of pharm from Step 1 again in terms of side effects and MOA.

Like FA for Step 1, do we need to memorize MTB 2?

I was wondering the same thing. I was told to do MTB2 and MTB3 for the non internal medicine subjects. Turns out that both books have 1100 pages combined. Not sure how people did this and qbanks, but I guess I should order my copy now.

What I've heard is that we need to know everything in MTB2 as well as we did in FA and try to know most of the MTB3.
