This book is good as a companion book to Guyton and Hall Physiology. I had to buy this book because my physiology lecturer made me. I had no intention of buying it. However he said that most of his test questions will be taken from this book, so here I am. The book has lots of questions on each chapter. What I found was that it has lots of formulas and calculation which I don't like too much. But all in all it's a good book because it gives you an insight to what USMLE questions are like. Even I'm not an american and don't have to write the USMLE it still is useful incase I have ambitions of migrating. All in all good book to go along with the main text. Buy it now!!!
