One aspect of this course that is received widespread acclaim over the years is the course notes. Course Notes are given out at the beginning of the course. The notes are frequently updated to reflect the current trends in medicine and the USMLE. They are readily adjusted as new clinical information become available. For example, important new treatment guidelines and principles and emerging treatment trends are updated as soon as they occur. This is very critical because textbook publishing cycles take 4-5 years; books that were already on the market wouldn't be updated until a few years after new medical discoveries. Treatment guidelines for various diseases evolve over time, and exam candidates cannot depend on old textbooks alone, as the information contained therein are not updated frequently. The USMLE Insider Course Notes are rapidly updated by experts in various specialties. You can always count on getting the most current information!
