Plus....BONUS...it fits easily into a "short white coat" pocket ;) 

As a podcast, it has now been optimized for audio learning and InsideTheBoards is re-launching the S2S podcast in conjunction with Elsevier (thanks Elsevier, what a cool publisher. ITB is improving the production quality and together with Dr. O'Connell, adding high-yield questions breakdowns (which is, after all, kind of our schtick) from Elsevier's Clinical Key Student (see? Elsevier rocks). 

During our Step 2 Study Smarter Series, we'll be releasing an episode of curated questions targeting each clerkship. This one is a selection of some of the highest yield questions from the various chapters in the book that cover surgery topics. Do you want more content to study on the go for the USMLE Step 2?
