Clinical Vignettes for the USMLE Step 1 is a compilation of 322 clinical vignette questions covering high-yield topics across the basic sciences.
The current format of the United States Medical Licensing Examination Step 1 (USMLE Step 1) exam emphasizes clinical vignettes—in single-bestanswer multiple choice format—as the only test question. The examination is 350 questions broken into seven blocks of 50 questions each. Examinees have one hour to complete each block.
Clinical Vignettes for the USMLE Step 1: Fourth Edition parallels this format. The book contains 350 clinical vignette-style questions covering the core basic sciences and was assembled based on the published content outline for the USMLE Step 1. The questions are divided into 7 blocks of 50 questions. As on the Step 1 exam, each block tests the examinee on all core basic science areas. Answers are in the second half of the book. Each answer is accompanied by a concise but comprehensive explanation and is referenced to a key textbook or journal article for further reading.
The questions in this book were culled from the seven PreTest Basic Science books. The publisher acknowledges and thanks the following authors for their contributions to this book
