Very good question!!! You probably have seen the "Underground Vignettes for the USMLE"? - I do not
recommend these for one reason: they are WAY TOO MUCH! If you can, try to find used copies of these
books and read ONLY the top portion of each case description.
Don't be afraid of vignettes, you DO NOT need to master Internal Medicine in order to pass the USMLE
Step-1. They ALWAYS give the most typical presentation of fairly common diseases. Much of it is "window
dressing" - i.e. you don't need the vignette in order to answer the question.
