Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Maureen McMichael, DVM, DACVECC (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive review for the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination. It covers each of the major disciplines upon which the exam questions are based.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a review, in outline format, to help students prepare for the NAVLE. This is a worthy objective and the book is the only one of its kind, according to the author.
Audience: Veterinary students who are studying for the NAVLE are the intended audience.
Features: The book presents the information in outline format and includes a companion CD that allows readers to take practice examinations from a selection of 1,600 questions. The review covers small animal, equine, food animal, exotics, and specific topics that apply to multiple species (e.g., clinical pathology, diagnostic imaging, etc.). The outline format makes it easy to quickly cover a section while studying. The book would benefit from additional illustrations to break up the text. I found some significant errors (p. 114 suggested giving potassium chloride for hyperkalemia; p. 94, B1c mechanism of action of spironolactone) that will likely be edited out of subsequent printings.
Assessment: This is an important contribution to the veterinary student literature. The outline format makes it easy for students to grasp complicated concepts and the questions on the CD will be helpful to anyone preparing for the exam.
