Thumbs Up Blueprints Medicine

I've had a look at most of the books listed in this poll, I really found blueprints medicine an excellent high yield oriented and seriously USMLE-specific.

I meant Kaplan lecture notes (Internal Medicine), i think it is helpful if it was added to the poll.
just my opinion coz most of the USMLEers depend on it in their prep.

MedStudy is not geared towards USMLE, it's for Internal Medicine Board preparation.

The poll is dynamic, people are still voting in it which means it reflects the current status even though it was started two years ago.

I used to think MTB is like FA of step 2 but there are more votes for blueprints and step up.
Do anyone know that. Is these books available in India?
