    Crush Vs First Aid

    Advertisements



    What do you think is better for Step 2 ck.
    I keep refering to each one after I answer a question wrongly and sometimes Crush answers it whereas other time FA answers it.

    I feel the layout of FA is better but Crush covers more material.

    any suggestions.

    crush vs FA Guest
    Well,
    step 1 First aid was awsome once you supplimented it with notes from questions... eventually during your studying things will have to be narrowed down to one book and question source that's why i was asking which ONe would be better.

    Or is step 2 unfortunately just not got one good source like step 1 did?

    thanks

    FA wasa great for step I, I think it sucks for step II. I still use it but I already got a step up and a crush to look over.

    CRUSH or 1st aid for step 2

    Can anyone who has studied from both FA step 2 and Crush step 2 help me to decide which to use as a primary focus in my step 2 prep?

    primary REVIEW source...FA.

    but do NOT rely on just FA..you need something more detailed like Kaplan Notes or Videos, etc

    and definitely do World questions...

    Step II Secrets I thought was better than Crush (even though they are written by the same author).

    Crush IMHO is useless....Not nearly enough information, FA definitely has more information in it than Crush. If either of them are missing something, I look it up in Kaplan....Most helpful though is USMLEWorld.....I'm just about to finish the questions my second time around and am taking the test in 2 1/2 weeks.....
