This is the second in a series of six posts about preparing for the USMLE Step 1.

Last week we posted about comprehensive Step 1 resources such as books, question banks, and online practice tests available at the library. For our first post on systems-based resources, the table below covers top-rated review resources in anatomy, embryology and neuroscience according to First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 2018 edition.

Some of the review books in our collection are available online. For print copies of resources, some are available in the 5th floor stacks can be checked out for 4 weeks; the loan period for reserve books is 4 hours. To check out a book on reserve, just stop by the 4th floor Library Service Desk and ask us to grab it for you from behind the desk.
