Product Description

Review

"The Crash course series is a series of revision books which are written by senior medical students for other medical students and they contain everything you need to know for an exam.
All the Crash Course texts present their subjects in a sharp, concise and easy to follow manner. The text is well spaced, and complemented with illustrations wherever appropriate. The layout is clear and logical. The language is simple and the facts are being presented almost in note form, which is a key feature of this series, enabling the student to absorb facts more easily without overwhelming the reader. And when you think you are ready for the exam you can test your knowledge by filling in multiple choice, short answers and extended matching questions which are in every crash course title. This series is the best way to prepare for an exam and I would recommend it to everyone."
Medical Student, Maastricht University, Netherlands (series review) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This is another fine text from the successful 'Crash Course' series. It is presented in a different format to the other preclinical 'Crash Course' titles. Part I takes the reader through the principles of the subject, with topics such as inflammation, tissue damage/repair, neoplasia, infection and inherited disease. Part II examines the pathological disorders involving each organ system, whilst also incorporating important clinical aspects. Part III is a self-assessment section that provides a good range of multiple-choice, short-answer and essay questions.
The text is concise and clear, whilst also readable and easy to understand throughout. There are numerous diagrams and summary tables, which help to commit the facts to memory and allow quick access to information. Hints and tips boxes highlight key facts and common exam questions.
One useful addition would have been some macroscopic or microscopic photographic images of the processes and disorders discussed, which are often a key part in understanding the pathology involved.
Nonetheless, it provides a succinct, simple, affordable introduction and revision aid to the subject of pathology.

Review from a Cambridge University medical student

This book is as if designed for the Stage 2: Clinical Pathology component. Gauging the number of books I see been carried about in exam term in the clinical school, about 40% of my year buy the book each time, with the number rising expoentially closer to the exams as people spread the word about the book.

Content: The level of detail is sufficient to get a distinction in pathology, if you learnt 80-90% of the total material. The content is that if you took Robbins: Basis of Pathology and made short notes from it, and added in all the useful diagrams/tables from Goljan's Review of Pathology. One of the main worries everyone has; is whether the detail is enough for the Cambridge syllabus, well it is and goes beyond it. It covers the histopath syllabus perfectly, and some of the haematology.

I have all sorts of path books; Robbins Basic Path, the larger Robbins Basis of Path, Goljan's Review of Path but I feel that this single book if learnt properly trumps them all for the Cambridge exams. No waffle, no superfulous detail. Just the right amount of detail for a distinction in the essay component, and if you memorized the boxes/tables; you will nail the TFMCQ, SBA, EMQ component. The book was also surprisingly useful to cover the practical path exam as well (ie details of the pathogenesis of disease)

My one regret? I wish I bought the book earlier before the Path exam and not the other books, and from talking to my friends; it seems that they have a similar feeling.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent book. It has the key points to all the important diseases. It appears to be a concise version of the Core Pathology by Stevens and Lowe. This book is so good that I bought one a few years ago, lost it and decided that I could not do my studies without a copy so I bought another one.

Format: Paperback
This book covers most things in a simplified way. Not as in depth as some pathology books, but it gives you good general knowlege. I still refer to it when I need to quickly refresh myself on a topic.
