Default Important topics not covered by MTB 2

Hi, I am almost done with my first read of MTB 2 and am amazed by the topics that are not covered there which I had to complement from MTB 3 and other resources. Important examples are: dementias, ovarian tumors, all breast disorders (benign changes etc), testicular tumors, vaccinations in children, brain tumors etc etc

Now, are these topics left out because it's a crappy and incomplete book or is it because they're considered low-yield?

Its a crappy and incomplete book.

No single book is complete for step 2ck from what ive gathered. Most of the topics they leave out seem to be heavily used in step 1, but theres still a lot of ones just not mentioned.

Having good step 1 background knowledge, and using uworld, should be enough i think (hope).

I gave up on MTB 2 halfway through
