Help Antimicrobials for CK prep?

I was wondering if studying the Antimicrobials from (MMRS) is sufficient? or should I study it from a pharmacology book..??

Cool That would be too much!

If you've taken Step 1 recently, the pharmacological knowledge will help tremendously. If not, I think it's still too much for Step 2 CK to dive into a pharmacology book. Your CK review books will have associated drugs and treatment methods (in addition to relevant common SEs and CIs) along with each topic. At least Kaplan lecture notes have it this way. And with Qbanks, you will further solidify your knowledge.

There are also some pharmacology cards from Dr Conrad Fischer which are for steps 1, 2, and 3. Are these good? Or are they too detailed?
