White Coat Pocket Guide (Giaccio, McWilliams) vs. Master the Boards (Fischer, Reichert)
By Anil B. Kabrawala - July 24, 2010
I'm sure many of you are wondering which book to choose: White Coat Pocket Guide or Master the Boards. Both are very good books and make great reviews for both Step 3 as well as Step 2. Nevertheless, White Coat Pocket Guide wins! The helpful algorithms and stronger focus on mechanism of action makes this book amazing. This book is also great for Step 2 because it incorporates pathophysiology, diagnosis, and next step in management, whereas Master the Boards only incorporates diagnosis and next step in management. Master the boards is also lacking strength in such things as arrhythmias and hematology/oncology, whereas this book pulls through strongly in both! White Coat Pocket Guide is overall very helpful and I would recommend it to anyone taking Step 2 as well as Step 3. In my opinion, I would choose White Coat Pocket Guide over Master the Boards.
Very concise and useful for quick review or quick reference

I bought this book recently as I'm going to prepare for step 3. I found this book is full of clear, concise, valuable and latest facts in 439 pages. Many thanks to authors and Kaplan to make such a useful book available. The size of printed words is comfortable to read; not too small like other pocket books. You can also have a few spaces at some pages to write down additional facts if you want to. This pocket guide will be also useful during on call and on duty for quick reference.
must have book

Amazing book! Must have. I got it accidentally and was so much surprised. Very well written, easy to read, no "water", just pure facts. It's not a single book for step 3, one single book just doesn't exist. But it contains so many facts that you cannot find neither in Kaplan Lecture Notes nor in Fischer's "Master the boards". Excellent algorithms, recent updated in care emphasized. Every word in this book is worthy. It's half the price of "Crush" or "First Aid" and it's 1000 times better. I'm sure in no time it'll become as popular as MTB. Highly recommend.
