Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ganesh V Raj, MD PhD(University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas)
Description: The 51 chapters in this urology review serve as independent modules with questions and short answers in the pertinent subtopics that may be on a board examination. The chapters are written by a variety of urologists, some senior level physicians and some residents and fellows.
Purpose: This is meant as a rapid review of urology principles and a study aid for preparation for the exam. The book meets most of the objectives. The rapid fire, question-and-answer format can be both invigorating and frustrating at times, especially if the questions are poorly worded.
Audience: The book is targeted at residents, fellows, and practitioners in urology who are taking their written and practical examinations. It is appropriate for residents who are taking their written examinations. However, the oral exams require a more stepwise approach and a logical, directed manner and in this sense, this book falls short of its stated objectives.
Features: All areas of urology likely to be tested on a written exam are covered. The book's best features are the rapid fire questions, the repetition of the concepts, and the ease of reading. Shortcomings include a lack of algorithms and tests to review the material and demonstrate true comprehension.
Assessment: This is an excellent guide for students of urology taking a written board exam. It has an easy to read format and is set up for quick assimilation of the topics and important concepts. However, it falls short of Choe's Urology Oral Board Self-Assessment, 2nd edition, Dahm (Anadem, 2006), for the oral boards.
