This review is from: Davidson's Principles and Practice of Medicine: With STUDENT CONSULT Online Access, 21e (Principles & Practice of Medicine (Davidson's)) (Paperback)
Davidson's is a world famous text, and after using it I know why. I love this book because after reading a section, you haven't just learned it, but you've understood it. It has two parts; the first part takes you through the overall basis of medicine, with chapters on the underlying principles behind prescribing, the basic sciences and disease in general. Moving forward from this "first principles" section, the second part contains chapters that systematically outline each sub-specialty individually. New to this edition are some more boxes and tables interweaved within each chapter, such as the "Evidence-based Medicine" boxes which provide conclusions from major clinical trials and also emphasize how up-to-date and modern this approach to understanding medicine is. Also, "Practise point" boxes come in handy in the clinic because they outline specific skills such as examinations and how to interpret certain tests. The illustrations and diagrams throughout are better than in any alternative text and, to be honest, I don't know why I didn't use this book before. I now know that this book is the core textbook for me and will continue to be for many years to come.
