"Medical Student," Mediscope - The Manchester Medical Student Magazine, October 2002told me to buy it but I put it off due to lack of money now I wish I d bought it sooner!" "Third year medical student"by browsing through the book it was obvious that the authors had written a comprehensive textbook and still managed to keep it "down to earth" and very interesting. The topic is enormous and the difficult task is indeed to give the reader useful and relevant information without loosing him/her to a vast number of details...The best way to emphasise the worth of this book is simply by looking at the grades we received this summer which was an exam in clinical medicine. The students that had used Kumar & Clark just got better grades, I guess that says it all." "Danish Medical Student," July 2004, Within this vast tome lies all the knowledge you will ever need to know - at least for your fifth year OSCE anyway. The layout is kept simple, and thankfully steers away from having huge blocks of text. Clear and concise diagrams mean that the information is overviewed in a way perfectly suited for revision. A quite unique feature is the list of system-based websites which can be extremely helpful. Other additional features include little coloured boxes that play a useful role in gaining more understanding.""Edinburgh Medics, a Res Medica supplement courtesy of the Royal Medical Society"
