Reviews from Amazon users, collected at the time the book is getting published on UniedVRG. It can be related to shiping or paper quality instead of the book content:
⭐ Been with the book for just a few hours now, and by just glancing over….there are few major updates from the 2020 edition. The 2021 edition has many more images, diagrams, and everything is structured better than 2020.There is a new communication skills section under public health that can help us transition from year 2 to 3 (in addition to board prep). The updated pages are printed nicely with dark ink, and the rapid-review section has been updated. There are a total of 828 pages in this edition. I preordered this edition back in early Dec 2020, so I am happy to get the book to prep for APMLE part 1.I will edit my review once I being to study from this edition!
⭐ Just got my First Aid 2021 copy and it’s great, truly the best USMLE Step 1 resource! The only way to use it IMO is along with Picmonic; this book is incredibly dense and hard to cram, so I review it page-by-page with Picmonic. This breaks the pages down into easily consumable sections and mnemonics so I can actually remember what I’m reading. There’s no other way to cram such a huge amount of info into your brain in such a short time! These two resources together are CRUCIAL to how I crushed Step 1 (268) and I’m proud of how well they worked 😀
⭐ The new graphics are excellent for a visual learner and I’m enjoying the updates! More than worth it to have the physical copy, and I’d rave more about the content but it’s already well known this is one of the must-haves for medical students. I just have to take off a star because of the build quality seems to have gone down this year. As another review mentioned, the front cover doesn’t fully obscure the first page of the book. Both the front and back covers are already beginning to split (they’re 2-ply), so I’m going to have to tape around the edges of the covers to hold them together. The book is also still delivered loose in a box with no plastic wrap or protection aside from a few bags of air, so it did get a little dinged in the delivery process and warped from the cold (improving with use). I hope they consider improving the packaging–my FA 2020 came the same way.
⭐ Overall, you won’t be missing a lot if you don’t buy this edition. Except for a few new low-quality images and basic Coronavirus information, the book is pretty much the same as the previous edition. I really liked the paper quality before, they were thick and shiny. It was very easy to write a note on them, erasing pencil writings wouldn’t leave marks, and I didn’t use to have trouble with turning the pages. Right now I feel like I am reading a cheap newspaper article with bad images. Very disappointed, considering the fact that we spend more time with this book than with our family for several months and keep it for our future references.
⭐ Your browser does not support HTML5 video. I didn’t like that I had to wait a while to get the book and the binding is off.
⭐ The content itself is useful (everyone should know that First Aid is essential for Step 1). Other reviewers have noted that the paper quality seems lower than previous years. My complaint about this specific sale is that my copy came with pencil markings in it before I even started studying.ETA: I realized that the marks I thought were pencil from previous use were actually marks my pen left from two pages previous (not bleedthrough, but imprint that somehow got color like pressing on carbon paper). Sooooo the pages are too thin.
⭐ I ordered this book for my USMLE exam. This is the latest version which is recommended if you are also planning for USMLE exam. The pictures are really clear and also the pages are good quality. The book cover is hard and the texts are clear with decent font size. Happy with my purchase.
⭐ Works fine, some of the images are SO small I wish I could zoom in on paper. There are a few errors so you’ll have to be wary of that.Small updated section for Covid. Like less than a page.Index is off by a few pages – shouldn’t this be automated by now?
⭐ the book contents of course are really good, but the paper quality gone really down, had the previous edition which was much more better in terms of the paper quality
⭐ Classic book correct for step studying and a great reference tool through out 3rd year. I’m not a fan of all the mnemonics in the book some are just outrageous and generally unhelpful but for the most part it has all the content you need to do well on step. This and a great question block will ensure you do well on the exam.
