I am not sure what do you mean by general principles :notsure:
Each and every book that is specifically written for USMLE Step 1 usually has the first few chapters dedicated for explanation of the general principles of the discipline or subject that's it's talking about.

Hi, thanks for posting.
In the score report of Nbme and the exam there is a subject called General principles of health and disease, and I don't know where to review that. I found a book of the first aid series that is called General Principles but the reviews were pretty bad.
The general principles refer to all the general principles that you'll encounter in all the basic medical sciences.
As I told, you don't need to read a book that is specifically dedicated for general principles. All you need is to pick the right Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Embryology, Histology, Cell Biology, Genetics, Microbiology, Immunology, Pharmacology, Biostatistics, Ethics, and Behavioral sciences Book. You can find the best voted book in each of these subjects in our Best USMLE Books page.
In each of such books you will find general principles in each and every little subject. Like for example if you start reading the endocrine section in a physiology book you'll see that there are chapters that are dedicated to teach you the general principles of endocrinology and hormones and so forth.
General principles of health and disease is a very broad term that encompasses all the basic medical sciences and their applications in clinical practice. They mention it in the official USMLE website and in NBME score reports but you won't find a specific resource dedicated for such a vast umbrella.
