    What people think about NMS Internal Medicine or Cecil´s Essential of Medicine. I have problems finding a good book for Internal Medicine. I bought Cecils but im not sure because it describes the clinical presentation and the pathophysiology but when you read the managment It gets to confusing becuase they dont give the information in a outline matter (in fact is a very wordy and dense book) so U dont know exactly what is the Best inital test or the most accurate test and the same thing happend with treatment....
    Wich one do U recomend?
    Please any advice will be appretiated

    NMS Medicine is very good. Also, Washington Manual. Cecil's and Harrison's are the standards for reference and in-depth treatment, but they lack in portability and format. Also try using eMedicine and Up-to-Date on your hospital's computers (or your own if you have access).

    Just For you to know guys,
    I got the NMS Medicine and I find it great, a little too thick but the outline presentation helps you getting into the information you need fast and easy, This is a nice supplemental book for the insicive people as me.....
    bye

    I second that! CMDT is working well for me so far. I also just ordered Step Up to Medicine, which I've heard is detailed, but a good read.

    NMS correlates pretty good with kaplan book but more info than needed. I only use it when I dont understand a specific topic.....
    I also bought Step up to Medicine by Agabegi and let me tell you this book rocks!!!!
    I think Step up and Kaplan Internal Medicine books are the ideal combination cuz Kaplan give you all the information but the format of the book is not good, long paragraphs with all the information stuck together but in the Step up to medicine the outline format makes the information easy to access and easy to recall and it has high yield information at the margins wich is phenomenal and even you have space for your own notes
    The book its that good that took me almost a month to find it..... right now there are some available at amazon but they will go fast, see the reviews ....
    Hope this helps!!!
