Important features of this book include:
1. Systematic and refined summaries of all common and uncommon diseases and disorders that are frequently tested in the USMLE Step 2 CK and Step 3. They are composed mainly of important concepts, etiologies, essentials of diagnoses, differential diagnoses, treatments, and preventive measures.
2. Well-organized contents in easy-to-remember formats and abbreviations; more than 100 tables for summaries and differential diagnoses, and necessary details of high-yield “orderly steps” in the diagnosis and management of major diseases. Most important clinical points are in “PEARLS”, underlined, and bolded as priorities and with great potential to be seen in the USMLE.
3. 600 refined, fundamental, and high-yield questions (HYQs) in real-examination format (“Single best answer” and “Matching”) chapter by chapter for application of the key clinical knowledge. All explanations and related topics should be read carefully.
4. 155 selected high-yield clinical images with brief diagnostic features side by side for deeper digestion and memory of the important clinical knowledge. All the “Clinical Images” and “Table of Contents and Classified Index” are linked to the text for reader’s convenience.
