Worth getting it as a medical student as we are in the process of learning surgical topics. It is a good complementary companion to the sister volume.

A perfect companion to Davidsons Principles and Practice of Medicine, this title of the same series provides all the surgical knowledge necessary for an undergraduate. It is a remarkably easy read and the text flows well. The information is presented in a logical manner and is succinct but provides enough depth to ensure you will not have to consult another text.

Illustrations are well used throughout the text to demonstrate procedures and anatomy, pictures of many of the conditions are also provided. Clinical imaging such as CT scans and plain radiographs provided alongside the text will help you in both exams and on the wards.

A feature I greatly appreciated was the links to current evidence integrated throughout the text, EBM (Evidence based medicine) boxes provide an excerpt from the study as well as full details so it can be accessed if you wish to read more. This is particularly useful as there is an emphasis to a greater degree than ever before to practise evidence based medicine, and knowing the studies which management is based on will certainly help you upon questioning by your seniors.

In summary a concise surgical text for the undergraduate containing everything you need to know for finals.

I have the principles of medicine book and really liked it so I thought this would be a good addition. No complaints. I am a nursing student who wants to be informed and this book has not let me down.

This is an excellent textbook at a very reasonable price. I would think that this text is ideal for medical students and GPs who are revising surgery, for whatever reason.

Excellent, comprehensive text. Easy to read, well illustrated
Useful for both undergraduate and postgraduate exams (some friends have even used it for their FRCS!!)
