This year has been difficult, but here at Hirsh we want to make it as easy to use our services as possible. To that end, we have moved all of the board review/prep books that were on Reserve.

Leo is always hard at work.

All of our board review and board prep books are now in the main Hirsh Book Stacks, located up on the 5th floor of the Med Ed building! This also means they can all be checked out using the MeeScan app, and then taken out of the building and hung onto for the normal checkout periods.

So if you want to get the jump on prepping for your exams (and who doesn’t?), you can head over to JumboSearch, look up the book you need, and get started!

Good luck with your studying, and don’t forget to reach out and let us know if you run into any troubles. After all, we may not be at the desk, but we are still here to help.

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

Our last post in the Step 1 Study Prep Series covered Anatomy, Physiology, Embryology, and Neuroscience resources. To continue to showcase our systems-based resources, the table below covers top-rated review resources in behavioral science 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 on reserve behind the 4th floor service desk and can be checked out for 4 hours at a time. The books in the 5th floor stacks can be checked out for 4 weeks.
