Main description

Zero-in on exactly what you must know to pass the OMM section of the COMLEX with this unique student-to-student guide

"As a test preparation book, this is a distillation of the OMM concepts and techniques that are considered pertinent to the examination. This is a very worthy idea primarily because of the limited number of comprehensive textbooks in OMM....This is an important book for schools of osteopathic medicine. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service

Written by an exceptional team of former teaching fellows at the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, First Aid for the® COMLEX presents high-yield bulleted information on OMM techniques with corresponding mnemonics, illustrations, and tables to reinforce must-know information. This is the only review book to include frequently-tested cases for the new COMLEX and is the perfect companion to First Aid for the® USMLE Step 1, insuring the most complete exam preparation possible.

Features:

  • Completely revised based on the latest student feedback so you know you're studying the most up-to-date and relevant material possible
  • High-yield bulleted coverage of the latest OMM techniques and treatments and osteopathic considerations for each core clerkship
  • Corresponding illustrations, mnemonics, and tables to reinforce must-know concepts and bring manipulations to life
  • Frequently-tested cases prepare you for the new COMLEX
  • Comprehensive guide to effective exam preparation includes valuable test-taking strategies
  • Questions and answers at the end of most chapters prepare you for exam day
