This high-yield, rapid-fire Q&A book is written by students for students to help first and second year medical students review physiology for their course exams as well as prepare for the USMLE Step 1.

About the Book
The Deja Review series helps you "Remember what you already know"; the flashcard format helps medical students recall the most important, must-know facts and concepts covered in their course work for physiology. This rapid-fire question & answer review book allows students to quickly navigate through the information needed for their course exams and USMLE Step 1. Active recall questions reinforce correct answers to enhance learning - not just passive memorization. Physiology is a required course in many medical schools, and heavily covered on USMLE Step 1.

Mnemonics and keywords sprinkled throughout the text facilitate focus on core facts, while clinical vignettes at the end of each chapter allow students to reflect on the topic they have just read.

This book will publish with seven other basic science books in the Deja Review series, along with USMLE Step1 and USMLE Step 2 review books for a total of 10 new editions in Fall 2010.
