Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Jessemae L. Welsh, M.D. (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: This overview of important concepts frequently tested on the general surgery in-service training examination (ABSITE) is organized to test readers' knowledge in a useful question-and-answer format..
Purpose: It is intended as a review for the ABSITE examination for general surgery residents, as a companion to a reading program. The book meets these objectives well. It would not be ideal as a sole source for ABSITE preparation, but useful as a tool to be used in conjunction with a textbook.
Audience: It is most appropriate for junior level surgery residents, but it also may be of some use to medical students interested in surgery and to senior level surgery residents looking for a quick review.
Features: The book covers a broad array of topics in general surgery in a question-and-answer format. It is organized by organ systems, has a few chapters on surgical subspecialties such as trauma and thoracic surgery, and does a good job of covering all the major categories. The question-and-answer format is an especially useful way to pinpoint deficits in knowledge as one prepares for the ABSITE. References are listed at the end of each chapter, but it may have been more useful to list them after each question, making it easier to access further reading.
Assessment: Overall, this is a useful tool for ABSITE preparation. It should not be the sole resource, but it is an excellent companion to a solid reading program. It is unique in its use of an active question-and-answer format, compared to other reviews that use a more passive outline format.
