Edge wear and corner bumps. Clean, tight pages and binding. Brown on Sep 30, This book has useful information for learning material that you will need to know in the classroom on on your boards. That said, this book is riddled with errors. You have to be careful what you read, because there are typos on nearly every page.

The questions at the end of each chapter are moderately useful in asking about what you just read. However, the question blocks at the end of the book are atrociously bad. One example: Supraventricular tachyarrhythmias that have been associated with hypersympathetic activity are most likely to arise from: A. Right sided sympathetic fibers originating from T1-T4 B. Left sided sympathetic fibers originating from T2-T5 C.

Left vagus nerve D and E are obviously wrong If you committed to memory the chart on page as you are supposed to for boards, see below you will remember that the spinal cord level associated with the heart is T1-T5.

There are 2 answer choices that fit that answer, and choice C is wrong because the vagus does parasympathetics. So you may be inclined to put B since the heart is, after all, on the left side. Well, you would be wrong, according to Savarese, as he explains in the answer explanation: "Fibers originating on the right innervate the right heart and sinoatrial SA node Left sided sympathetic fibers innervate the AV node.

Many of the questions end up this way, making for a frustrating exercise. The one most important thing in this book, as regards to the board exams, is the chart on page showing segmental sympathetic innervations. Since this chart is easily obtained from somewhere else, the value of buying this book is questionable at best. I suppose, looking back, that it might be worth it to get the book, if only just.

One thing going for this book is that it is a quick read; you can go through the whole thing at an easy pace in less than a week. Just heed my warnings about typos, errors, and the question blocks at the end are of dubious relevance. This book give the key aspects of OMT and the principles and easy to reference for quick review. Otherwise, I used this book to review 2 weeks prior to the exam date, and was satisfied.

BTW, you probably over study for the OMT exam but its better to be extra prepared by using this book. It takes the most important concepts from OMM and organizes them in a neat and easy to digest package. The text is large and approachable, the images are simple and effective though not colored or very artistically drawn , and the chapters are short and well organized.

If I had bought this book during medical school I would have used it for classes instead of the suggested readings. Each chapter is well organized. The chapters start with useful information, contain mnemonics in the margins, and include separate boxes for key points and concepts. Each chapter ends with multiple choice questions to test your comprehension from the material you just read.

The book is organized the same way that OMM should be taught in my opinion. It follows the musculoskeletal system. You learn about cervical spine, then thoracic, then lumber and so on. It all flows very nicely and it an easy read. It presents the material clearly and concisely. It has some great charts, good images, and "Trigger Points" - areas pointing out the key information on a topic that can be quickly reviewed at the last minute.

Certain topics may need to be supplemented with course notes, Foundations, or another resource ex: Crainal ; but overall the book serves its purpose of putting the important information all in one book with an easy to read format. The book helped me to get a quick and to the point review in a very short period of time. In general, I felt the book did its job.

I felt the book was a good buy. Thank you for your help. Almost a 1 stop shop. It highlights key features of what you need to know. Provides some very useful mnemonics. Do not buy "Foundations for O. Great for boards. By Jessica L. Morel on Sep 27, Pretty much everything in this book was on the test. If its marked to know I had at least one question on it. Just a good synopsis and also helpful on the anatomy questions too.

When our results came back, we were over points above the national average as a class and I did even better. The questions in the back are very helpful in preparing and will leave you with few surprises when it comes to the shelf.

The only thing I wish I did was buy this on day 1 of my first day of school so I could have used it for studying for exams. I never actually did the questions in the back of the book. Overall, I would highly recommend it and buy it again. Good enough to get you through the OMT sections of By Scheckell on Jan 06, Does the job. High yield. Easy to read. It is a great summary of "everything" needed to know for the big test.

It comes with 4 practice tests, which are all equally important in helping you prepare. Overall would recommend. I love it! Teaches everything very well but cuts out all the fluff. Highly Recommend! Used for Level 1, 2, and plan to use for level 3 not to mention probably continue to reference in the future. Definitely recommend this book to others looking to do well on their board exams. A few questions are keyed incorrectly, so look that up when you get this book. Stable for any DO med student.

Would highly recommend to any DO student. A must for DO students! Very well written and concise. It helps to explain some of the more difficult concepts to understand, particularly if your lecture PowerPoints fall short.

Students need to memorize these, yet some are missing from this book and the rest are scattered throughout a few sections. If you actually go through this book Note that there is an error with cranial techniques with sidebending rotation, other than that the questions are solid and very good practice. Five Stars By Mathew S. Grade saver!!! By Studentdoctor on Jan 02, This book was phenomenal.

When it came to understanding sacral torsions and gait dysfunctions. I also had a really hard time with ribs, this helped out tremendously. When my teacher started realizing many of us were reading saverse, she ended up clarifying the way she wanted us to practice OMT despite what saverese said. This doesnt change the fact that this book helps tremendously in gaining an understanding.

Use it throughout your 2 years and for boards!! However, there are some minor errors that need to be addressed and the writers seem to deny that.

Overall the book is concise and easy to read, however, there are a couple of editorial misprints and some of the information contradicts itself from the text portion to the end of session quizzes. High yield concepts are presented in easy to read format with trigger points highlighting the important points to remember. Each section has review questions at the end. It also has 4 exam sections at the end of the book with answers and explanations. This book is written for rapid review in the weeks close to your exams but can be used during the first two years of osteopathic medical school as a study aid for OMM.

Why are you reading this? By Thejosh on May 25, You know you need this book. Why are you wasting time reading comments? Do yourself a favor: buy this now, get it out of the way, and have this ready for the fun week you will spend trying to remember all of the imaginary "strain patterns" of the cranium. I read through it in one day and then did some practice questions.

This particular edition is in a Paperback format. It was published by Omt Review and has a total of pages in the book. To buy this book at the lowest price, Click Here. Similar Books.
