The Best Cell Biology / Histology Book for USMLE Step 1 Exam
Post and Poll Options were last updated on September 28th, 2013.
In this poll we vote for the Best Histology review book specific for the USMLE Step 1 Exam.
Choice of Books Listed in the Poll
You will notice that larger textbooks of Histology are not listed here, we are voting for those books that are specifically useful in the step 1 exam prep.
The books listed above are useful for Med school students during their med school years as well as graduates who are preparing for the step 1 exam.
Books that have only questions with no review of Histology are not listed. Similarly Flashcards are not listed.
Books that are outdated (8 years or older) and that do not have updated editions also get removed from the poll, their votes are also deleted in the process.
If we have missed a Step 1 Histology Review book, please post about it in the mainstream Step 1 Forum and we'll add it to this poll.
Because Cell Biology is closely related and often reviewed in the same book, you'll see we here also enlist Cell Biology related books, not only Histology.
You will also notice that we move away or delete replies to this thread. This is because we want the focus on the poll above rather than discussion and comments. You can always check our Histology Tag for discussions about Histology prep and books for the step 1 exam.
Who should vote?
Please do not vote if you haven't used any of the books above. Artificial inflation of votes by book authors publishers will be detected and removed. Votes that are older than 18 months are automatically deleted.
Why books are linked in the poll options?
Book links are periodically updated to the latest editions and will take you to Amazon pages where you can purchase those books. Books that are not available in Amazon cannot be listed.
