Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bruce Don Dubin, DO (Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine)
Description: This study guide for the level one national board examinations required of medical students is not intended as a comprehensive review, but rather as an adjunct that uses a patient-case format to help students understand the clinical context of the material.
Purpose: Used in conjunction with other study guides, this book will assist medical students in understanding the clinical relevance of the basic science material. It will greatly assist students in preparing for the case vignettes commonly used on the national boards and in classroom examinations.
Audience: Although intended for medical students at the end of their second year in preparation for their board studies, this book also will serve as a nice review of basic science principles prior to third-year clinical rotations.
Features: This book provides clinical correlations for the basic science covered in the first two years of medical school. The clinical vignettes are concise and to the point, and serve as nice points of reference to assist medical students in understanding the clinical relevance of the general basic science principles they are studying.
Assessment: As an adjunct to standard board study materials, this book will be a useful asset in board preparation and will enhance clinical understanding and better retention of basic science principles.
