    YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THIS BOOK

    There were many times throughout the pathology clerkship that i had TOTALLY given up on hematology. None of the books i read seemed to make any sense, they were all just saying the same thing over and over. And my lecturers (bless their dear souls) were'nt able to penetrate my skull either. Then a classmate of mine showed me this book! All of a sudden, hematology is not that hard, dont know why i never realised it before. The book has a very easy to read format, excellent pictures, and each topic is covered quickly without leaving out vital information. And all the topics were covered, none was left out. And with all of that, the book is not too big. I used to carry it around with me and read it a few minutes here and there, and i got so much from it. As texts go, its possible for you to read this book through in a couple of nights and absorb a vast of information, and not only remember it, but understand and be able to apply it.
