Book Reviews
"When finals is all about getting the clinical signs right, I found books like this perfect for covering the ground behind why things you see happen, and being sufficient to cover core knowledge about the fundamentals of the processes behind clinical pathology.
[This book] was great for helping establish exactly what and more importantly where I should be concentrating on during my examination techniques."

“These books are brilliant for taking on the road out to peripheral hospital placements, and cover all the essentials (plus a little bit more) on all the key topics. They have plenty of information to help explain those topics and subjects you see on the wards/in theatre…When time is a little short, and you simply need fast hard facts in an easy to read yet thorough way these books are simply perfect. I have no doubt in recommending them to my friends or any other medical student."
