Features: The sections are arranged to the corresponding textbook chapters. The clear and concise images are used appropriately. The questions themselves highlight the important aspect of each chapter and are written very fairly.

The objectives of the book are pretty straightforward and the authors do a good job of achieving them.
Assessment: This is a very nice accompaniment to the textbook. The multiple choice format is easy to use and the answers are concisely written. All readers, particularly medical students and residents, will appreciate this.
