Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Thomas J. Hansen, MD (Advocate Health Care)
Description: This is an update of a review for the family practice board certification examination. The first edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The two primary objectives were to make this book as broad and comprehensive as possible, and to provide a general review for those in primary care.
Audience: This book is intended for primary care physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners. The chapters are written by family physicians and specialists, primarily at the University of Iowa Roy J and Lucille A. Carver School of Medicine.
Features: "The book is both broad and comprehensive, with chapters written by family physicians and specialists who contribute informative, easy to follow, and concise discussions. Chapters cover the main systems of the body as well as HIV/AIDS, men's health, women's health, care of the surgical patient, and care of the older patient. In addition, there are chapters not traditionally included in board review books on ethics, end-of-life care, evidence-based medicine, and patient-centered care. Chapters are well written, contain questions consistent with those found on the boards, and provide explanations that will help readers navigate these topics on the exam. The case-based approach provides a comprehensive review of topics commonly encountered in the family physician's office. Each chapter contains clinical pearls, quizzes, and objectives to ensure that the main points have been addressed. The numerous illustrations include quality images of dermatological conditions, EKGs, and x-rays. Tables provide useful charts and are effective teaching tools. "
Assessment: This will be a wonderful resource not only for those preparing for the family medicine boards, but also for family medicine residents, physicians, and anyone else working in a primary care setting.

    Great, user-friendly book

    I was searching for a book to use to study for the SPEX exam and found a review from a user who was successful with the earlier edition of this book. I bought the first edition and then "upgraded" to the second edition when it became available. I found the book easy to read and very complete. I had no trouble passing my SPEX exam this spring and plan to use the book again to study for my Family Practice Boards this summer.
