Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This is a softback book set out into 18 chapters to aid the veterinary student in passing the radiography section of their examinations. It is primary aimed at SVNs, but could be of use to other students where radiography is part of their course remit. The author, Suzanne Easton, is a specialist in her field and lectures at the West of England University in Bristol. She has attempted to make this style of exam recall fun, and it shows in the text. It has been presented in such a way as to make it easy to read and follow. A very worthwhile addition to a student's bookshelf, I would recommend it to any SVN.
