I read TO notes a lot during preclinical years, but found the size cumbersome.
Best idea ever - rip out the pages of the section you want to read, and put it in a little duotang 3 hole folder and carry it with you on the wards. I went from reading it occasionally, to almost finishing the whole thing in a couple of months. Great sections on family med, peds, psych, gen surg, obsgyn too.
internal med you have to mix and match. Any surgical specialty is golden too!
Emerg I found a bit lacking as a resource for clerkship.
