Hi, premier review has some of the cases and the steps are well defined. Even the USmle world ccs
cases are very good and there are enough cases with steps well explained. Try to remember the
main headings first, (first step is put all the keywords in question together and see if there is any
clue. Some cases look absolutely vague, like kawasaki's disease and such. So keep an eye for
vague cases like anemia, chronic fatigue syndrome (oh! Don't miss to r/of pregnancy, sometimes the
vague case will say just tired and missed periods will be a clue on further questioning and such.)etc
which don't come with too many explanations in the beginning, group the vague cases together and
keep them in a separate 'file' in your brain:)... Next quickly think of steps like is it emergency? If not
start of with complete history, p/e etc... Remember based on the findings whether p/e or images and
labs are the only clues to define next step, so there is no guaranteed fixed steps for any case, but
knowing the order to follow in non emergency cases and what to order based on findings is
something you'll learn from those UW cms cases and premier review cases, not to mention all the q
banks and notes also contribute to the knowledge. So relax and focus on recalling the correct steps,
and go from there. Good luck and don't hesitate to ask if any more Q.
