Harrison's for IM

Step up to internal medicine (more relevant for US but I like how it's written)

Approach to internal medicine by Hui et al

I read all of the core rotation case file series (ex. case files general surg, fm, etc) 

Surgical recall 

Since I came from UofA they had this book called the Edmonton Manual that was useful for rapid OSCE reviews

I know the UofT group/students wrote a book called essentials of the clinical examination that is also good 

I have the clinical guidelines for family medicine that I also used during residency 

There are many more but those are the one's I can think of off the top of my head

I liked all the first aid series, didn't get to read them all but did help find a lot of info.

I had a copy of step up to medicine, but didn't read it that much so never got to really use it too its fullest.

Case files are fantastic, loved the questions and answers in there, very high yield.

surgical recall: wasn't too sure, some nice info and high yield stuff. I am not a surgeon so a lot of it didn't interest me too much. I heard people who liked surgery enjoyed it.

For IM, there was this green book by Mass general hospital that was a good pocket reference, I think it's a purple book now?

and of course uptodate saved many asses lol

No way anyone reads all of Harrison's cover to cover unless they really like IM 

I just skimmed large book's sections based on cases I was exposed to or based on study objectives.
