Saunder's Editions


Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this... I graduated June 14th (yay!) and will be taking the boards in July-ish. I already have the 3rd edition of the saunders review book, and I'm trying to figure out if I should buy the 4th edition. Is there really a difference between the two books? Is it worth it? I don't really have a lot of money, and I don't want to buy more than I need to.

My plan for studying:

1) Kaplan book (class was too expensive -- $500?!)

2) Saunder's review book

3) Saunder's Q&A book & flashcards

4) Clinical Pharmacology Made Ridiculously Simple (James Olson)

And lots and lots of computer review questions. :p Thanks for reading and good luck to everyone else getting ready for boards! Congrats!

Get the 4th edition and put the other books away if asking for my opinon. You do not have much time available if you are testing in the next few weeks and having more sources will only lead to confusion.

Which 3rd edition do you actually have, if not the revised one, then definitely get the 4th.
