Overview

Now in its Third Edition, The ABSITE Review is one of the most popular study guides for the American Board of Surgery In-Training Examination (ABSITE), which residents in general surgery must take each year and residents going into surgical subspecialties must take during the year of their general surgery training. This easy-to-use book presents concise, digestible chunks of information in lists and outlines that facilitate quick memorization. Every component of the exam is covered—basic science and clinical knowledge in all areas tested. This edition incorporates common decision-making algorithms and covers the material that has appeared in the most recent exams.

    good review pocket size book for Absite day to day reading

    This book is not bad for Absite, but sometimes is not as clear and comprehensive as you expect from such a book. However it can give you good review if you familiar with subjects, but its not enough as the only one book to read, needs a lot of additional reading from other sources.

    I recommend this book to all intern and residents in surgery
    It is a must-have book on surgery wards
