Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ivan Damjanov, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is the third edition of a well known pathology review containing over 1,000 multiple choice questions and answers. Like its previous editions, it is linked to the Robbins and Cotran Pathologic Basis of Disease, 8th edition, Kumar et al. (Elsevier, 2010), and thus belongs to the family of Robbins pathology resources.
Purpose: This review is designed to facilitate the reading of the textbook. It will help medical students studying pathology and will reinforce their knowledge as well as its application in clinical training.
Audience: It is aimed at medical students, but it could be used by their teachers as well. Pathology residents also could learn quite a bit from it, and practicing pathologists could use it for continuing medical education. The authors are the leading educators in this field and are well known and respected nationally and internationally.
Features: The book follows the outline of the eighth edition of the textbook, which was published simultaneously with this companion. Thus the book contains 31 chapters in three units. The first unit deals with major topics of general pathology, the second with systemic pathology, and the third contains integrative reviews. Each chapter is divided into two parts: the first with questions and the second with answers. All answers are indexed to the appropriate pages of eighth edition of the textbook, but also to the seventh edition and the smaller Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th edition, Kumar et al. (Elsevier, 2007). The answers are often illustrated with pictures from the main textbook. There are no references and there is no index.
Assessment: This edition of this very successful review book has been updated, corrected, and expanded. Like its predecessors, it is well written, didactically superb, and comprehensive. It is ideal for both students and teachers of pathology. It remains the best review of pathology on the market. It is highly recommended to all medical students and it should be available to them in all medical school libraries. In my humble opinion, a better review book could not have been written.

    Good for course review

    I have used this with my classmates to review courses before a test. Love it. The vignettes are great, and they really make you think.

    Occaisionally there will be an error, but they aren't very common. Hopefully the publisher takes note and fixes the errors.
