This book is an excellent quick board review and a necessary addition to any medical student's books for the first two years." — Adam Darnobid, Fourth Year Medical Student, SUNY Upstate Medical University

"All of the questions that pertain to a specific disease or clinical presentation are extremely high-yield...a good review of the topic." — Lee Donner, Fourth Year Medical Student, SUNY Downstate College of Medicine
