Overall, a good book that covers all the topics in great detail - so much detail that it makes for terribly boring reading. Very technical, lots of information for the serious nerds out there. But you all knew what you were getting into. Use it for the main text to understand, supplement it with another outline for memory.

You dont need a teacher if you have this book by your side. The illustrations and histologic slides offer you immense knowledge about the diseases.

If you know this book front to back, you will ace medical school. If you are a self-learner, simply skip your pathology classes and use this book. This was my #1 reference for my entire 2nd year.

This text is a must have for med school or PA program!! I advise you DO NOT buy the CD-rom that accomodates it. It's terrible. The pocket guide is ok, nothing to rely on.

The poor organization of this book detracts any value from its numerous color micrographs, gross photographs, etc. Topics are presented in terms of their morphology, genetics, clinical features, pathogenesis, etiology, etc--each with a separate section! I feel like I'm reading pieces of a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle and must read through multiple times (the below reviewer is right on target) to assemble them into an integraed whole. I suppose that many students will enjoy this book because of lack of a better text, but there ARE better books out there...note also that Stanley Robbins' name only appears on the book--he took no part in the editorial process , and it shows (his 1960ish book makes a heck of a lot more sense, despite being outdated).

I'm a year four medi student. Sometimes, I need to take a review for my rotation. The text is fascinating and clear-cut. Anyway, recommended.

This is a detailed and a fascinating reference text of pathology. This is the gold standard to which all other undergraduate patho books are compared. This is not a book for the faint of heart, but if you want to master pathology, this is the book for you. Admittedly, this book is way too much except for the most dedicated student and is best used as a reference text. It will flesh out your understanding and your class notes. I wouldn't (and didn't) use this as my primary text, but I did refer to it often.

The authors have a tendency to be long winded in their descriptions. The authors also tend to jump from subject to subject within a paragraph or section, making it difficult to comprehend major topics without reading through multiple times.
