Vikas Bhushan and Tao Le Bring You: First Aid For USMLE Step 1

First Aid is a concise guide for preparing for the USMLE Step 1 examination. Having recently taken a National Board Exam (which is very similar), let me tell you: this book is invaluable. If you are just starting med school, browse through this book as you go through your classes. Take notes in it as you see fit. By the end of your preclinical education, you will have a great summary of all the key points from the first two years!

Seriously, it sounds like the standard "Be a good student" (like "Study hard" or something) that no one really does, but this is my one big regret from my years in preclinical courses. I really wish I had started taking notes in First Aid from day one instead of procrastinating and only starting with 2 months before my board exam. Don't be dumb like me!
