    (Note: this review is largely copied and pasted from my Case Files surgery review, with small changes where appropriate. I've found the Case Files series to be pretty consistent in each book's content, explanations, questions, etc.) I really like the Case Files series for shelf exam studying. I like how each "case" is presented, and how history/physical findings, diagnostic tests, pathophysiology, and treatment are explained. I also think that the format of the Case Files books is great - each ca (Note: this review is largely copied and pasted from my Case Files surgery review, with small changes where appropriate.

I like how each "case" is presented, and how history/physical findings, diagnostic tests, pathophysiology, and treatment are explained. I also think that the format of the Case Files books is great - each case is short enough to read over the course of only a few minutes, yet you still feel like you're actually learning as you go through the book. I carried this book around with me when I was on the floors, just in case I had a few minutes to go through a case. My only issue with this book (and with the case files books in general) is that it doesn't include everything you need to know about medicine. It definitely lists many of the bread and butter cases, but it still doesn't cover everything you need to know for the shelf. I would suggest supplementing with another book, like Step Up to Medicine. I'm also not a huge fan of the questions at the end of each case - they seem to be more of reading comprehension questions than actual knowledge based or application of your knowledge. I would definitely recommend doing other questions in preparation for the exam (I'm a big fan of the USMLE world question bank, and the question book published for medical students by the ACP).

    The Case Files books are a great resource for third-year rotations. They cover common topics that you need to know and put them in the context of common patient presentations. As an extra bonus, each case is short which is great if you don't have a lot of uninterrupted reading time and can only read for fifteen minutes here or there. Each case is concluded with Comprehensive questions. There are some errors in the answer keys, but once you read their explanation for the answer it usually becomes The Case Files books are a great resource for third-year rotations.

There are some errors in the answer keys, but once you read their explanation for the answer it usually becomes apparent what is actually the right answer. If you're interested in a particular speciality in internal medicine, this book may fall short - internal medicine is just so broad and this book covers the main topics. If you're looking for a book that is more directed at general internal medicine, however, this book is a great way to start!

    Sixty medical cases, each followed by a section of teaching points and some review questions. IMO, this is the best style of learning-- connecting the textbook information with a "real patient" presentation. Case vignettes are also what most of the tests are based on nowadays. I actually enjoyed reading this book, and I feel that it was a good format for learning.

I actually enjoyed reading this book, and I feel that it was a good format for learning. The cases got me into the mindset of looking for the elements of the patient's history and physical exam that allow me to make the diagnosis, and find appropriate treatment options. Even more than passing tests, that's the skill that third year medical students really need to be developing. I plan to use this book series to study for all of my rotations.

    This was a nice BROAD overview of COMMON cases seen in internal medicine. It is not meant to be an in-depth internal medicine textbook. It is a relatively quick read with a lot of good salient take home points. Good if you are looking to brush up on internal medicine. The summary points at the end of each chapter are gold.
