Series: National Medical Series for Independent Study. Paperback: 704 pages. I intend to use Dr. Tilak Shah's 'NMS Medicine Casebook' as one of my main sources for my Step 3 prep as the book is that much in-depth! (and I still have about a third of the book remaining to finish!). EXCELLENT BOOK! The ONLY issue I have had with this book is with the binding quality of the book.

Medical Books for Doctors, Physicians, Surgeons, Dentists, Intensivists, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Medical Technicians and Medical Students easy to download. Each topic begins with a brief patient history and a question about the most likely diagnosis or next step in management followed by a discussion of alternative diagnoses and management strategies.

NMS Medicine, Sixth Edition is the ideal reference and review for medical students in the internal medicine clerkship. The concise, outline-format coverage of essentials, end-of-chapter USMLE-style questions, and case studies at the end of the book offer excellent preparation for the shelf/end-of-rotation exam and USMLE.

This edition has been thoroughly updated and streamlined to focus on essential material. The revised questions better reflect the level of difficulty of shelf/end-of-rotation exams. The book has a new two-color design with more illustrations and wider margins for notes.

A companion Website offers the fully searchable text, additional material which is indicated in the book by icons, and a comprehensive examination.

this book was really similar to the information taught in our pathophysiology course so I found it very helpful. I never looked online for content because i thought there was plenty of useful information in the book.

It's an amazing book, i have an earlier releases of it and they are also very good, but it's better ofcourse : )

I bought this book because I loved the NMS Q&A for family practice and figured if the question book is this good then imagine what the text will be like. The book is set up in outline fashion with sentence descriptions (not bullet points like Step-Up/First Aide) but many have little computer mouse icons next to them. This means go online and look at the text online. Problem is the text is not yet available online. I've e-mailed the publishers but I can't imagine that will do anything at all. Also the review questions at the end of each section are not very difficult (and definitely not the quality of Q&A family practice). Overall the book is good but it really needs the missing information (the mouse icons) to be complete. I would say us Step-Up when studying for the Shelf exam or boards and not NMS Medicine, atleast not until they get the online text working!!!!

I really *wanted* to like this book. I used NMS Surgery and NMS Pediatrics previously and thought both were excellent. This book might be helpful for others, who like me, have trouble learning by reading a list of bullet points such as in StepUp of First Aid. Some things in this book were explained really well. However, I found many typos, which made me nervous about the quality of the editing as well as the reliability of the information in the book. Some chapters have large chunks of text missing. For example, in the endocrinology chapter's discussion of oral antihyperglycemic agents, it completely leaves out sulfonylureas and biguanides. The additional online information is a nice idea in theory, but it isn't user friendly to assume someone will log on to a computer to look up a chart. If it's important, put it in the book. If not, leave it out. I hope this book will be updated someday and improved, since I think it has potential.

I thought this book would be great, but it's really not! It lacks huge chunks of information about diseases. There are some disease processes that it just flat out doesn't even mention. It also has certain sections that require you to look online to read about. I bought the book to read on paper, not on my computer! It's sitting on my shelf awaiting to be resold or burnt. Overall it is a poor choice.

I can't really recommend anything else besides Harrison's or Cecil's if you're looking for complete coverage. But as any medical student would know, those are impossible to read.
