A Comprehensive Case-Based Review Guide for the Family Practice Boards or Recertification Exam

5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "The book is both broad and comprehensive, with chapters written by family physicians and specialists who contribute informative, easy to follow, and concise discussions. Chapters cover the main systems of the body as well as HIV/AIDS, men's health, women's health, care of the surgical patient, and care of the older patient. In addition, there are chapters not traditionally included in board review books on ethics, end-of-life care, evidence-based medicine, and patient-centered care. Chapters are well written, contain questions consistent with those found on the boards, and provide explanations that will help readers navigate these topics on the exam. The case-based approach provides a comprehensive review of topics commonly encountered in the family physician's office. Each chapter contains clinical pearls, quizzes, and objectives to ensure that the main points have been addressed. The numerous illustrations include quality images of dermatological conditions, EKGs, and x-rays. Tables provide useful charts and are effective teaching tools. This will be a wonderful resource not only for those preparing for the family medicine boards, but also for family medicine residents, physicians, and anyone else working in a primary care setting." -- Doody's

I really enjoy studying from this book. In terms of style, it's your basic Q&A book with the answers immediately after the question (as opposed to X number of questions then answers separately). I personally like this format more, because I don't totally forget the question after doing ten more and it's easy to directly reference the question in the discussion. Note this may be user preference (I think Swanson's is questions then answers separate).

Important side notes are nicely highlighted in boxes, which I enjoy (breaks it up). Most of the tables are good. There is an insert of gloss photos for derm and optho mostly, hits the major stuff (it's no derm book).

The cool thing about this book is that the authors put their own little pizzazz (ha) into it, with commentary and sly jokes. I like this, some won't, keep that in mind. This kind of brings me to my main point, this book is not boring. Somehow, they were able to keep it intriguing and educational.

My only grip is that there are some errors (with answers and choice descriptions in the explanation). I suspect somewhere on the internet there are corrections, but I just fixed them myself (technically I should be able to retain is better).

I am a family doctor in practice for twenty six years. I used this board review book on my kindle, for this, my fourth recertification cycle. I just took the boards today. I can wholeheartedly recommend this book!! For several reasons... I learn best while problem solving, and that's what this review is all about... Clinical cases and questions. The explanations are concise yet they cover the pertinent details. When I sat for the exam today, it was just like a continuing version of this book! Well, I am not a professional reviewer or anything, but this book helped me a lot and I am very happy I chose this text!!!!

I'm still working on this book. So far, I'm pleased with the truly Board type questions that are posed. Many other Board review resources seem to be more esoteric and in detail than what the Board exam was like. Don't get me wrong, these questions are not easy to boost your confidence at all. They are a realistic approach to what would be seen in practice and in the Test. Then following, is a properly brief explanation of the answer, and quite nicely done, an explanation of why the other answers were not correct- a crucial issue when one can make a cogent argument for more than one answer. They then provide references for you to use, which I don't. I then receive a good assessment of what is lacking in my knowledge on that subject, put down this book, and go review the subject in another more in depth book. I've owned several different types of Board Review books, but not all, so can't comment on many of the other products out there, but as far as this one goes, it seems to be dead on, and is my main study source for the upcoming Test.

I purchased this book through Kindle for iPhone. I am so impressed by this ebook. It is very readable on the iphone. I really like the format, with a brief case presentation and review questions, broken up by tips and pearls. The cases are presented in an entertaining way, with occasional humor. I found myself easily reading through the cases and questions without feeling bored or annoyed at having to study. Very enjoyable, informative, with information that you can use on a daily basis.

This book is outstanding. I used it to prepare for my FP Recertification. The authors do a great job of not only teaching you how to think and approach medical problems in a real world setting, but they also manage to teach to the test. I think the dual-pronged approach of helping the reader not just pass the boards, but also learn something useful in real life was a huge success. It's a book that I will read again even though I passed the boards just because it is so helpful and thoughtful.

The acid-base discussions are way too in depth for anything needed for the boards, but still a decent read.

I had also purchased the video and syllabus from one of the 4 day conferences and watched some of those, and they were pretty useless. In combination with this book, the slides were helpful as a bullet review, but not worth the $1000 I spent on it.

I bought the Kindle version and used it on my Mac. The search features were good. Highlighting started out good, but after a while, the Kindle program got very bogged down and doing anything except reading became very slow. I think this is a Kindle app issue, not a book issue, so I still give the book 5 stars. The experience via the Kindle is more like 4 stars.
I love Mercedes
I REALLY did not want to study for an exam I had to take in General Medicine, required by one of the State Boards. This book totally got me into studying. First, it was reassuring to discover that every single thing I knew I had to review & worried about, was there. I kept a few reference books on the side in case I wanted to delve into something more, but truly there is no need for that to pass the exam. This book is doable, hits the exact right level of difficulty, has superb explanations and, best of all, the authors are real people! Every now and then, they throw in something humorous as someone else mentioned and I loved it....like a comment about most conjunctivitis infections. Most have having a viral etiology but bear in mind that children get "magically better with topical antibacterial ointments"...and the topicals can prevent a secondary bacterial infection anyway. A nice mixture of humor, rigorous discussion and common sense. Enough to keep me plowing through it a little every night. Don't understimate the book. It's packed with up-to-date, test-taking material. You probably won't get through as much per night as you though you might. But I kept going & passed the exam. These authors deserve a prize! I only wish they would write the Board Certification Review for my Specialty!

This book - along with the AAFP Board review classes - provides the complete review for the boards. Dr Graber has such an excellent grasp of the concepts that reviewing becomes fun and not just rote memorization. Thank you Dr Graber for providing such an excellent resource.
