UPDATE (17-2-2019) : I got both Master The Boards Step 2CK and Master The Boards Step 3. Am very honestly saying that Master The Boards Step 3 is absolutely BETTER than the new Master The Boards Step2CK. Many updates are found in MTB3 not even changed in the MTB2. The fact that MTB3 focuses more on diagnosis and management than MTB2. The only downside (with both books) is that you have to have a reference or videos ( the best is the MedQuest videos of STEP 3 !!) that emphasizes on the pathophysiology and associations of some diseases ( I find Kaplan lecture notes Internal medicine THE BEST book of them all in terms of explaining and correlating with the basic science. However some diseases and treatments are mentioned in the MTB book and not in Kaplan’s LN ) and if you are just wondering, doctor Conrad Fischer is one of the WRITERS of the new Kaplan LNs internal medicine and if you know him well you would be able to recognize that while reading. I would really recommend the MedQuest videos because they add up MUCH to what you already know and to what is in the books
There is no order to this book. Things are sort of thrown around randomly. A lot of important things are no where to be found.
Overall, I'm gonna go through this book just to give myself a sense of order during step 2 ck prep.
I would advise anyone to stay away from this book and focus on uworld. This is not worth your money.
2) Poorly written. Long sentences with no information at all.
3) Not well structured. The book is divided in big chapters, but inside of the chapters, there is absolutely no organization, just a succession of random facts. For example surgery : trauma, then some digestive pathology, then ortho, then back to hernias and varicocele.The index is not exhaustive at all, and makes finding anything in the book take way longer than it should. I can understand that it is hard to be comprehensive, but at least, structure the information so that the overall flow of chapter flows!
4) Some errors along the way as if this was not enough...
