Suggest a Med School Book to Review!

The best way to know how to tackle a topic is by using prior experience within it. This site was created for that purpose: so that medical students going through courses can pass down their experiences and mistakes.

We already have a long list of books to be reviewed, but we’re happy to change priorities and bump things ahead based on what is desired.  If you have a specific pre-clinical class or clerkship that you’re in the dark about, or would like to know more about a specific book, please leave feedback below as a comment, and we’ll try to get to it as soon as we can.

If however you are fond of a specific book you’ve already used and want to review it yourself, please use the contact page for submissions. User-submitted reviews may be incorporated into team reviews, or even featured on the site in full with credit given to the author if the review is accurate and meets expected standards.

    Hi ,
    Please is there any recommended book for parasitology ?.


    • admin says:

      That’s actually quite detailed, and likely not to benefit any medical student during med school. It’s such a small sliver of questions on step 1, if any, any won’t be needed again until rotations such as Infectious Diseases or away rotations in other countries.

    Could you please suggest books for USMLE Clinical Pathology Exam.
