MKSAP for Students 3 includes over 400 patient-centered self-assessment questions and their answers in print and on CD-ROM. Designed for medical students participating in their clerkship rotation, the questions help define and assess mastery of the core knowledge base requisite to internal medicine education in medical school. The questions reflect the many management dilemmas faced daily by internal medicine physicians and when coupled with the answer critiques, provide a focused, concise review of important content.The evidence is strongest for pravastatin, 40 mg/d, and simvastatin, 20 to 40 mg/d . Previous studies of lipid-lowcring therapy other than statins did not show a decrease in stroke risk (and showed lesser decreases in cholesterol levels).
