"For every mountain there is a miracle."
Robert H. Schuller
It's the time of the year when medical graduates flood the university belt as early as 5 o'clock in the morning. It's horrifying that a doctor's license to practice rests on the board exams. Of course we need a tool to measure one's knowledge.But there's a big difference between academics and clinical setting.
All of you med graduates, HANG IN THERE and PRAY! Based on experience, here's a list of helpful review books:

ANATOMY: Snell, BRS, Recall, High-Yield, Case-Files
BIOCHEM: Digging Up the Bones, USMLE Roadmap
PATHO: First-Aid, BRS
PHARMA: HighYield (this was the only book i reviewed)
MICRO: MRS (this was the only book i reviewed)
SURGERY: Recall, Toronto Notes, First-Aid
OB-GYNE: Toronto Notes, Panlilio, BRS
PEDIA: Blueprints, Toronto Notes
IM: Blueprints, High-Yield, Toronto

There's no specific book that will make you pass. Find the 1 that will make your review easier to remember. READ IT OVER and OVER AGAIN. Don't forget to practice your testmanship. PRAY! If you fail, DON'T LOSE HOPE. Do better next time. Sometimes, or many times, it's just luck.
