I just recently finished studying for the USMLE II. I received a passing score and was able to go on to an amazing residency. About my studying: I used a variety of resources, howvever, one instrumental tool was the Boards Made Ridiculously Simple Step 2 by Andreas Carl. I felt that this little book, seemingly insignificant, was really a brilliant text to supplement my other studying. At first glance, this book seems too limited in scope and difficult to understand how and where to integrate and understand the material. However, after studying other resources and taking a closer look at this book, one sees that this text is anything but limited. This book helped tie together many loose facts from my other studying and also, due to the many charts and tables, repeats key concepts and ideas that by the end of my studying, these phrases were etched into my memory ready or the TEST ITSELF. Thus, I highly recommend this book to anyone who will seriously study other resources as well as this book because I found that, alone, this book does not help at all, but, together with other sources, it proves to be a unique way to tie in and bridge together seemingly unrelated facts and topics to give you a better overall understanding of what fits in where. So, buy this book if you are seriously going to study the correct way!
