Now in its thoroughly revised, updated Third Edition, this study guide is an indispensable aid for surgical residents and general surgeons preparing for the American Board of Surgery's certification and recertification examinations. The text is based on the material covered in a Surgical Board Review course given annually by the Department of Surgery of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center. The Third Edition provides a current, concise, methodical review of all areas covered in the exams--both general surgery and all surgical subspecialties. Sample questions and answers are included to facilitate review and increase understanding. Many new questions in this edition cover the most recent developments in surgical science and practice.
