Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From reviews of the previous edition:

‘Simply, I couldn't have asked for a better guidebook than this … if you're the no-nonsense type and want to get straight to business but you need a starting point, here it is no doubt.’

‘I really liked the bullet-point layout, it makes it easy to revise from. The format was good, going through clinical symptoms, investigations, management and complications - with diagrams.’

‘Essentially, each chapter is summarised in an easy-to-read format with questions at the end of each chapter to test your knowledge. Good diagrams, and well written. Easy to pick up and use at your leisure without having to re-read reams of text. Can't think of any medical topic that isn't covered in this book. Great for cramming before exams.’

'Has the fear set in yet? I was an absolute wreck until I read Pass Finals, and, as the title suggests, one reading of this will see you through. Although based on Kumar & Clark, the book is fantastic on its own. Whether your course is more academic than clinical or your finals are OSCE, essays, long or short case, Pass Finals teaches you, reminds you and tests you on what you need to know. Remember common things present commonly! ECGs CXRs and even how to answer questions the best way are all included. This gets an instant 5/5 for readability, quality/content and usefulness for revision!'
