Interesting read if you want to know more about transplantation but not an exam preparation title!
on 21 January 2015
The at a Glance series is primarily aimed at medical student and is geared to be useful for both the visual learner, the wrote learner and for those who are looking to revise in the lead up to exams. Transplantation at a Glance is one of the titles within this series.
The advantage of this title is not in the preparation that it provides you for examinations at medical school as it is highly unlikely that questions will come up on this topic. If however you are interested in transplantation then you will find this a useful read at a level that a medical student will understand it, covering topics such as the diagnosis of death, the ethics of donation, harvesting & transplant along with specific considerations for each different organ system.
In conclusion this title is an interesting read but not a useful title for a medical student to read given the vast variety of knowledge that a student is expected to know. If you are interested in Transplantation though, it would potentially be worth borrowing a copy from your university library.
