Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This board review book uses the traditional approach of an organ-system review with some additional areas commonly included in the ABIM examination.
Purpose: The book presents the core information in a structured format, not intending to provide an in-depth discussion, but to focus on testable material. The objective is both clearly stated and accomplished. There are few extraneous words and because of this, the book is somewhat sterile in its presentation which makes it a bit difficult to read through.
Audience: This is definitely a "just-the-facts" review written for students and residents preparing for examinations. The contributors are mainly from the Saint Louis University School of Medicine faculty and are clearly authorities in their fields.
Features: The book is organized in a traditional organ-system manner, with each section divided into major diagnoses or problems of that system. There are the characteristic definitions, and summaries of pertinent physiology. The illustrations and photographs are black and white, which takes away somewhat from the book. The tables take some thought to extract the information. There are classic references that one would be expected to know for examination purposes.
Assessment: This has all the information that should be known but the presentation makes it a bit difficult to use. The lack of color and the format of the tables make the text less practical than most. However, the information is there and the book would make a great additional reference.
