First Aid for the Basic Sciences, General Principles (First Aid Series) 1st Edition

by Tao Le (Author),‎ Kendall Krause (Author)

“I would recommend this book to those preparing for USMLE Step 1. The chapters are inclusive with useful color pictures and charts. The many sidebars that include clinical correlates and mnemonics further help with retaining information. I would also recommend this book as an adjunct for those in the first and second year of medical school. It can help students focus on those aspects of the curriculum that are most important, both for Step 1 and during the clinical years as well.”– Doody’s
