3.0 out of 5 stars Nice tubes, 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If the screw on earpieces didn't come loose now and again and get lost on the floor id give it an even higher rating. Comes with a spare pair though

1.0 out of 5 stars not bad for the price, 10 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm downgrading my rating for this phone from 4 to 1 stars. I thought it was quite a nice phone for the price, comes with a rubberised case and 2 batteries. After a couple months use, these batteries can barely keep my phone working for a few hours. The phone crashes more often now, and then reboots into a weird mode where all the options are in chinese. Touch screen has become more and more glitchy. Now the date and time and contacts get mixed up. You get what you pay for I guess, shame, it wasn't such a bad phone initially

2.0 out of 5 stars try before you buy, 5 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm preparing for MRCPCH part 1a and 1b, and frankly volume 2 at least which I have read a lot of, has not been that useful. A lot of the chapters give succint summaries but have a list based approach and seem more catered to people who have a lot of clinical experience. There is not that much explanation. The clinical problem and answers are often useful though. The oncology chapter was pretty good. I don't think this book justifies it large price tag. It is the official book though, so what do I know

Case-based Haematology
Case-based Haematology
by Shaun McCann
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent case based book, 22 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Case-based Haematology (Paperback)
It can be hard to tease out the clinical practicalities from a lot of haematology text books. This set of cases is excellent as you can see what investigations are relevant and why, the role of reticulocytes for example. Each case has a flowchart diagnostic pathway at the end for the particular condition it covers. Shame it doesn't have a list of case diagnoses at the end of the book to make them easy to navigate. Not a textbook, but perhaps suitable as a first text to use in conjunction with a textbook to make learning stick. This is one of the handful of books I bought in medical school that actually served to be useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good guide, 23 Dec. 2006
This is a good guide which I used in my application. However, to stay abreast with the recent changes in medical education (with regard to MMC in particular), its worth looking for a more recently published book also; the RSM press book "A career in medicine - do you have what it takes?" has a new edition coming out in January, and appears to have a website as well for updates [...]


Intelligent Systems for Engineers and Scientists, Second Edition (Electronic Engineering Systems)
Intelligent Systems for Engineers and Scientists, Second Edition (Electronic Engineering Systems)
by Adrian A. Hopgood
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars Good coverage, 23 Mar. 2005
This book does cover a lot of the main areas in intelligent systems, such as rules-based systems, fuzzy logic and neural nets (not much on genetic algorithm though). However, the style of writing is sometimes a bit terse, so I found myself having to re-read topics a number of times for understanding. In my opinion, amplification of difficult topics would have been useful, as well as some questions to test understanding.
This book is not really a primer, but serves a good review of the core topics in the field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating novel, 3 Jan. 2005
Apparently, it is an allegory of the German occupation of France in WWII, but I read it as an account of what life is like as a human being dealing with a catastrophe like plague - how do you deal with continuous death, the same thing over and over again, and keep your humanity?

5.0 out of 5 stars If you don't know regular expressions - buy this book, 14 Dec. 2004

An excellent introduction to regular expressions that covers the main features in just 10 lessons. Superb, I fear regular expressions no more!
