Kaplan attempted to simulate the success of the First Aid Series for USMLE Step 1 by publishing this book which included only the high yield tables and bulleted points for quick review.

The new 4th edition of the review book has been published by Kaplan Publishing on October 2, 2012 across the nation at all major retail book stores.

The new edition for Kaplan medEssentials 2012 can be bought on Amazon here.
