Easy reading revision text with fabulous annotated diagrams
on 13 June 2001
"Surgery at a glance" successfully achieves it's goal of providing simple, yet complete, information on the most important topics in general surgery. The accompanying illustrations act to clarify the text and provide the reader with a visual stimulus to memorise the topic for exam purposes.
The book is efficiently laid out, with each double page spread covering one topic area. The topics are divided into clinical complaints and surgical diseases, making it quick and practical, and useful in both hospital and revision settings.
I highly recommend this book for those medical students approaching finals; it provides one with the essentials for planning a top class essay, and a logical approach to presenting complaints as might be found in the clinical examination.
