USMLE: CSA Comprehensive Review

by Sanjay Vinjamaram

This book comprehensive yet precise, covering every aspect of CSA, thus making it self-sufficient, without any need for supplemental material. The book is conveniently divided into major systems and covers all the important symptoms and cases. At the end of most chapters there are a few practice cases which have actually been on the exam, followed by a few assignment cases. Each chapter includes the “CSA Patient-Interview Techniques”, history, differential diag­no­sis, labs and the patient education that is required for each symptom. Brief physical examination is covered in each system to hone your clinical skills. Well, that’s all you need for the CSA exam. The intention of this book is to allow rapid and accu­rate assimilation of knowledge, particularly in a limi­ted time. Chapters covering Obstetrics and Gynecology and Pediatrics have been included, as those cases have begun to show up on the exam. Though some questions in the history of present illness section and certain labs may seem excessive or unessential, they have been included for information only and appropriate questions need to be omitted as per the actual symptoms of the standardized patient (SP) in the exam. Complete your assignment cases promptly before you proceed to the next chapter. It is advisable to take your CSA exam within a short time after studying the text thoroughly as concepts and information will be fresh in your mind.
