5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable For Your OB/GYN Rotation 2 Nov 2012
By S.G.H
This book was my main reference during my OB/GYN rotation. First of all, this is by no means a pocket book, but it's still relatively light and was therefor my constant companion during my rotation. The text is large and easy to read and the book is very well organized. For each condition clear subheadings are used to explain pathogenesis, symptoms, causes, etc.

I found the amount of information to be just perfect for a medical student. It is consice and to the point without overly-simplying the topic.

I have to say that although I very much dislike OB/GYN, this book was a breeze to study. It is so well-written that I actually enjoyed studying it since it made it so easy to grasp a specialty as broad as OB/GYN

5.0 out of 5 stars Core Text For OB/GYN Rotation 26 Oct 2011
By Diverse Diva - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book to have for your OB/GYN rotation because it:
1) is easy to read
2) has key words well defined
3) has key concepts in bold or italics
4) has 100 practice questions with detailed answers at the end
5) has excellent diagrams, graphs and tables to help reinforce the concepts
6) is a keeper because the info presented in it is useful for IM rotation or residency / Peds -Adolescence elective

My only critique is that the questions presented in here are to easy when compared with the questions on the NBME shelf exam (does not ask enough management / what is the next best step type questions).

I came back to edit this review after completing my OB/GYN Clerkship and Shelf exam. This book is great for building a foundation to understand women's health issues BUT the questions contained at the end of the book are NOT sufficient to do well on the shelf exam. I recommend ALSO purchasing a question book and doing as many questions as you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book 27 Nov 2009
By William Largen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the first time I've used Blueprints. It is written in textbook format, which I don't like, but it is also terse and only tells you what you need to know. I just outline it and study off my outline.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tough Read 7 Sep 2011
By Cormac A. Sookram - Published on Amazon.com
Spent a week trying to read this and realized I'm wasting my time. It lacks enough detail to be a good reference book on the ward, but too detailed for studying for the shelf exam. Textbook format is a big thumbs down. This is hard to read and takes forever, don't expect to finish reading this whole book and be covered for the shelf. Even if you do finish it, it's doubtful you'll remember much. Waste of time, lucky it was free from a fellow student.

4.0 out of 5 stars Medical student worthy for wards 7 Dec 2009
By S. Ramirez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is pretty much to the point. If you are looking for more wordy info,...get another book. But it's quick & dirty which is awesome for medical students. It's an easy read for boards!! I like this book so far.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little TMI, Needs a better editor 20 Jan 2012
By venos003 - Published on Amazon.com
The option of a textbook format is nice for a study book. For the most part it is readable, but I often found sentences that were vague in meaning or poorly constructed. This sometimes made quick comprehension difficult. Also, I have noticed a few minor errors here and there, most of which a medical student should pick up on (i.e. p311: "tamoxifen, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SERM)..."). Some chapters contain a considerable amount pathophysiology or embryology, which paints a nice picture, but I felt was often unnecessary for shelf/step 2 purposes.
