Students who just took the USMLE Step 2 CK reveal what it takes to excel!

"I highly recommend this book for Step 2 review. This is useful because it has a consistent, straightforward question and answer format. The answers are short and to the point, which makes it easy for self-tests. The 'make a diagnosis' sections are very helpful )and reflective) of shelf exam questions. I will be sure to let my classmates know this is a great resource!" -- Jesicca Bury, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Class of 2010

"Deja Review is jam-packed with key concepts and important details. I like the Q&A format, and that you can cover up the answers. It forces you to interact with the material and actively recall information rather than just reading the information. The book fits perfectly in the white coat pocket so it can be carried around and whipped out during slow times." -- Tina Nguyen, SUNY Upstate Medical University, Class of 2008
