This book is the best question book you will ever use third year. It was dead on for the NBME in IM. I used a review book, then case files, then did all these questions twice and honored the NBME (first in my class to do it because we only have 8 weeks of IM instead of 12 weeks). There is no reason to look anywhere else for IM questions prior to the test.
Essential for the Internal Medicine Clerkship May 6, 2008
Most internal medicine clerkships have a shelf exam at the end of the rotation. There is no gold standard textbook for internal medicine that I have encountered due to the fact that there is such a breadth of knowledge found in the discipline. However, for the shelf exam, this book is essential. It has been updated past the 2nd edition to include questions and information about current guidelines for treatment. Also, an additional feature that is great is the cd-rom which contains the entirety of the book in a computer based exam which can be customized.

I highly recommend using this book during your internal medicine rotation. The questions are shorter than those on the actual shelf exam, but they require the same thought process. On the shelf, the questions are less focused on "what disease does this patient have?" and instead involve choosing the appropriate diagnostic test or treatment. The same can be said of the questions in MKSAP 3. Another nice feature is that the book comes with a CD with all of the questions. This allows you to keep better track of your progress and to take the questions in a random mode, rather than just subject-based. Besides doing the questions themselves, it is also important to read through the answer explanations, which are excellent. Overall, a great investment!

This book is a wonderful review! Internal Medicine Essentials is a great companion for this question book. I feel it covers the relevant topics, and points out the main take home message in a clear and concise manner. The Essentials book is sort of like a "Blueprints" except it is written by ACP. I haven't taken the boards yet, so I can't promise this is the best approach...I feel pretty confident however. Hope this helps!
