Where do I purchase First Line Guide?
The 1st edition of FLG has limited copies left. Please contact @family_med_pa on instagram or use the "Contact Us" form on this site to request one. The 2nd edition will be out in the coming months and will be available on Amazon. We will no longer be selling through Barnes and Nobles.
I heard there were printing errors in the 1st edition? Will I get a book with printing errors?
In the printing of the 1st edition, there was an error with the printing company that Barnes and Nobles used. we were not made aware of this until hundreds of copies of books were distributed. We ensured every one of these customers received the correct version, free of charge, just one week after publication. We have switched printing companies to prevent this from occuring in the future.
I found a mistake/error in the book. How do I share the correction?
We apologize there was an error in the book. To keep the cost effective, self publishing makes it almost impossible to prevent errors from occuring in the final prints. We plan to correct these as we are made aware of them. If you find a correction, please use the "Contact Us" form on this site and be sure to include the page number, topic, error, correction, and a resource citing the correction.
Is there a PDF of the book?
Unfortunately, due to the inability to prevent the book from being copied and illegally distributed, we are unable to provide a PDF of the book. We will continue to look into making this a possibility.
Does the book follow the PANCE blueprint?
Yes! The book follows the PANCE blueprint. We were made aware of a handful of missed topics. We will include a PDF file of those topics under the "Resources" tab on our site and include them in futur editions.
Can I submit artwork or help edit future editions?
Yes! If you are interested in helping with future editions, please use the "Contact Us" tab and fill out the form. Be sure to let us know if you would like to submit artwork or help edit, and we will be in contact with you about next steps.
I am a medical/nursing/NP student or an MD, DO, NP, RN, etc. Can I use this book to review key concepts?
When writing this book, we intended it for to be used by all medical professionals and students studying medicine as a resource. Our goal is to help students understand key concepts, rather than memorize thousands of small facts.
I read there were mistakes in the first edition. Will those be corrected in future editions?
To keep the cost effective for students, we opted to self publish. The book has been reviewed and edited countless times by more than 10 medical professionals, and continues to be updated. We will provide all corrections and missed topics on the "Resources" tab, to ensure every FLG customer recieves the same quality as our future customers. We will always be transparent about these mistakes, and ensure the corrections are readily available on our website, free of charge.
