Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Published Reviews of the 1st Edition

"...is a good book to refer to if you are revising for finals as it has concise short entries which aid revision and retention of knowledge.Saying that, it would be a handy book to have on you whilst on clinical placements because its alphabetical organisation makes it easy to access information quickly." (5th Year Medical Student, Liverpool Medical School, Sphincter, December 2003)

"...it is a clear and concise whilst also being accurate and comprehensive...this book is an ideal 'ward round companion'...and its clear, succinct and memorable format would make it an excellent revision aid." (Medical Student, Guy's, King's, St. Thomas' Medical School, GKT Gazette, January 2004)

"It certainly is exhaustive and I would defy even the most determined interrogator to ask you a differential that this book could not answer." (Oxford Medical School Gazette, vol. 54 (1))

"A great book if you are a lover of lists and a handy reference for PBL style teaching...all in all a good book to have." (North Wing, Sheffield Medics Magazine, Winter 2004)
