I don't usually write reviews, but since I find customer reviews so useful & helpful myself when I go through different books or products on Amazon, I thought I should write a brief review myself on this book.
Ok, this is directed to med. students. You might have Robbin's pathology, Muir's or Underwood's pathology books recommended to you by your faculty, but I would recommend this book in particular for you as a medical student, like myself. I find it extremely helpful to give me a ''broad'' idea with enough details of the topics I'm covering. It doesn't waste your time at all, which is something very important for medical students, to study smart not just hard. We have to pick the right books to study from, we got tons of other subjects, topics, clinical work to cover and all, we don't have all day on just pathology!!
One great thing I like about this book is the review test at the end of each chapter, which gives you clinical cases of a history of a pt. with a number of signs & symptoms, and asks you to choose the most likely diagnosis. It helps you to train yourself how to apply what you just read from say resp. pathology on real cases, real clinical scenarios. I think it's useless to learn and study so much then being unable to apply that knowledge when you get a clinical case, so that's one great thing I like about it.
But of course that's my personal opinion, others might disagree. We all have different ways of studying and different ways of looking at it. But for me, this book is excellent.
Just wanted to share this review with any medical student who's looking for a good book to get. Hope that helps.
