Tries to do too muchNot a good purchase for rotations. This book tries to do way too much for a 'Blueprints' book - I have used 'Blueprints' Pediatrics, Ob/Gyn, Psychiatry, and Neurology (with the first three being the best) and have liked them and found them useful. However, blueprints EM is absurdly laid out with 100+ chapters on everything from Ludwig's angina to intussusception, most of which are about 2 pages. Because of this, there is absolutely no continuity to the book and no overall sense of organization tha. Not enough depth I found this book a little bit superficial for a last year student or for an intern. I guess it should be all right for a MS-3. Blueprint ER Great book. I love it. It has a lot of useful info.It's easy to read. just wished it had more info.
