Excellent read along for course work

This book is well written and formatted in a way that makes it easy to follow along with a medically oriented immunology course. If you have more than a couple months for your board review it would be a handy tool as well, although First Aid does a brilliant job of covering the high yield stuff you will see on the USMLE.

Somebody's got to stick up for this book

I almost didn't buy this book after reading some of the reviews here. But I have been getting killed by the immunology questions on Kaplan's QBank, so I decided to get it after all. So far it has been a very good decision. The best part about this book? I got it today and I am already more than 1/3 of the way through it - it is clear, concise, and easy to get through. Someone else wrote in their review of this book that people should get Levinson's immunology text instead - but it is 600+ pages! I don't have time to read that much before I take Step 1. This is a very good review book...if you are trying to learn immunology from scratch you are probably going to be lost, but the High Yield series assumes you've already taken medical school coursework and need a focused review source, not a complete course in immunology. Pros: -Concise -Well organized; easy to find the information I need -Last few sections of the book are almost entirely clinically focused - just what is needed for USMLE preparation Cons: -Some of the diagrams are hard to follow (but I don't know how to make the complement pathway look better, so I can't blame them) -I would have liked a few more graphics to break up the text and help illustrate concepts. -The review questions at the end are not very "USMLE like" - they are more straightforward basic review than actual board prep.

Great review book

Perfect review book for the USMLE step 1. It is quick yet thorough. I found it was a great supplement to what was in First Aid and had all of the pertinent information. I didn't see any topics on the boards that weren't covered in the book.


Great book. Well organized, compact, easy to read. If you've got no time to lose, this is your book! I read it and learnt it in one day!

When you can't afford time?

When you are short of time and still want to score good in step 1 immunology, then go for this book. I bet you won't repent.
