"How the Immune System Works" is a concise book that provides a great overview of immunology. It was the only immunology resource that actually made things click for me!

I purchased this multiple times, it is very concise and readable. It's also up to date in a field that is constantly changing.

Everyone basically just goes through the lecture slides +/- random Googling and UpToDate. (Maybe looking at the odd textbook if something is suggested, but usually they're more "reference" books and not great "teaching" books.)

I really wish I had come across this sub sooner (like M1) because having recommendations like Costanzo (physiology), How the Immune System Works, as well as the usual Pathoma, B&B, etc. would have been amazing to supplement lectures that weren't so great.

In terms of what we're really missing out on though, I think the single most useful thing is probably QBanks. It's hard to walk into exams without ever having had practice questions to do before so depending on your goals (like if you want to write Step or not) UWorld / Rx / Kaplan might be something to consider.

I used Anki on and off, but it was honestly really difficult to pick out what details we'd actually be tested on based on our lecture material so it wasn't always a great use of time.

Janeway's a great reference for a uni course but can be very verbose/dry if you're just starting or doing it for pleasure. I recommend Sompayrac she does a great job of explaining the core concepts in an easy to grasp manner which you will need before you go deeper.

I used this in undergrad. It is written with good analogies to understand. really helped me get the basics understood before we hit the hard stuff.

I’m a big fan of how this book describes the fundamentals so clearly. It’s fairly quick read and it doesn’t get into the weeds.
