by Lillian S. Kao (Author), Tammy Lee (Author). In terms of content, I think there was good coverage of the major aspects of surgery and the book provided questions that tested concepts that were on the shelf exam (of course there were random qs on the surgery shelf that i don't think anything could have prepared me for).

While the main users of this book are those (all over the world) who prepare for the USMLE step 2 exam (the questions were prepared in a similar format and complexity), its use is certainly not limited to them. While practicing clinical surgery, basic scientific knowledge of our profession tends to be forgotten or at least appears to assume secondary importance.

Too many errors. One of the questions discusses doing a biopsy on suspected testicular cancer (NEVER do this-- it could seed the cancer-- the answer is to proceed straight to orchiectomy). There are also some minor answer key errors (states the incorrect letter before going on to describe correct answer in explanation). Although the majority of the questions seem ok, the mistakes undermine my confidence in the reliability of the material. I'm not sure this book has been thoroughly reviewed and edited. Go for it if you've already used other sources and are looking for more questions, but I'd recommend other sources-- UWORLD, firecracker, pestana's, DeVirgilio's, and shelf-life surgery-- before this book.

The strength of this book is that it provides a variety of questions and the explanations are quite good (yes, there are typos-- but they are obvious). Unfortunately, it didn't help me get the score I would have liked on my shelf exam... My exam just had wayyyy too many nuanced questions that were beyond the scope of this book. If I could do it all over again, I would've chosen a different book to supplement my Q-bank. This would've been best used as a 'supplement' to a primary Q-bank and a secondary book to read in-between cases ONLY if I had extra time to study and wanted extra practice.

Full of typos and errors. Can't believe that this book got printed like this. There were at least 4 questions asking you to look at an X-ray or CT that wasn't there. There were a ton of questions in which the explanation did not align with the given answer choice. This book was obviously thrown together in a few days because they know they can make money off dumb med students like me with any piece of crap. I have never written a book review on any before but felt motivated to let everyone know this book sucks.

This book has a number or questions that have some element involving "the imaging study shown here." Well, this would be fine, except the image isn't in the book, so... yeah.

Also, the correct answers for a number of questions don't actually match up. For example, the answer quide will say answer B is correct, but if you read the description, it actually describes one of the other answer choices as the correct one.

Someone clearly did not do an adequate job proofreading this edition.

This book is great for studying for the surgery shelf... Just know that the questions are a little more difficult and out of scope from the actual shelf (more surgery here than on the shelf which is more medicine application of surgery scenarios).

Cons: Pre-Test is known for typos and questions that are too specific or hard for the clerkship exams.

Pros: Great book for people that like to actively study since it is pure Q&A. The chapters are separated into specialties, so you can go thru a chapter before starting a sub-specialty to get familiarized. The answers are well-written and more concise than Uworld. Overall, I learned a lot from using it. You can easily finish the book in a long surgery rotation and still have time to use other study resources (i.e. uWorld)

I have been using the pretest books to study for all of my shelf exams this past year. I just got the new edition of pretest surgery. I have to say the questions are good, but I found quite a few errors. I mean seriously? This is a brand new edition and I have found multiple errors or lack of images that were supposed to be there to answer questions: 388, 397, and 444. There where other questions that had problems as well. I expected a little better editing skills for a book from McGraw-Hill.
This book, at least the Kindle Edition, is fairly low yield and has some very frustrating errors in the answer key- namely that the answer listed and the answer description do not always line up. It is nice to have 500 questions to proactice on for only $20. I would suggest Pestana's Surgery Notes, which includes 180 quesitons, over this title.

Pros- cheap, it has some key concepts
Cons- errors in the answer key, low yield overall (there were few to no concepts exclusive to PreTest that were on the mock board), not as targeted for the Surgical Board or Step II as Uworld
