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.

About the Authors
Reviews "I think this book would be great for USMLE review as well as Physiology course work...I think this book did a great job putting the right amount of details to help students prepare for the course exams as well as the USMLE." -- Sheree Perron, EVMS, M2
"This extremely useful book reinforces the relationship between basic science and clinical medicine for students. It will help them either review or learn basic physiology as it applies to medicine, which should strengthen their diagnostic and therapeutic skills. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service
