    Can anyone plz share what supplemental books really helped them out during first semester. By supplemental I mean compact, straight to the point, high yield books other than the required texts.

    Yup, it's been discussed over and over. I don't mind helping anyone out but you're a big boy/girl.

    For MCB and Histo, the class notes are more than enough.
    As for Anatomy, Clinical Anatomy by Moore for blocks, Netter's or Rohen's Color Atlas for lab, BRS for the shelf.

    Thank you for the advice.

    Are the alternatives to brs anatomy any good? Can anyone share their experiences with HY or rapid review anatomy vs brs??

    BRS... that is it. You can also get some questions off of the Utah med site for practice questions. These mainly help because they show the style of questions that you will see. With that being said. 100% of the questions you will see will come straight from the lecture slides or lab supplemental notes, so really by far the best thing to study is the class notes. BRS just frames the information a little cleaner and more orderly than the notes. Reading outside sources for the other classes is a waste unless you don't understand the information or what is going on. Then they can help you to make sense of the notes... but again... 100% of the questions come from the notes. Embryology was a little weird on this.. but still notes are your best bet along with the Dr. N review... which always seems to cover a massive chunk of the questions asked. Not sure if he does that anymore or not since Embryo is its own block of anatomy now or whatever it is.

    Yeah, when Dr.N is giving you a review he is literally going through the topics he will test on one by one, record the review lecture and know every point that is brought up. There are only so many types of clinical questions possible for the written test and they are all in the lecture notes. It becomes pretty predictable after a while.
