If you feel better about your studying when you buy books then go for it, it's the best on the market for just now, which doesn't say much to be honest.
Here is an example of a particularly frustrating question which typifies this book: fat girl with gall stones, cholecystitis, normal CBD, transaminases are elevated. There are the usual options, the right answer (I would think) is that she has a lap chole and ioc. They say, MRCP followed by lap chole because "in this case there is a high possibility that there are no ductal calculi and the patient could proceed with lap chole and on table iOC. However, some centres lack expertise to offer this routinely...preoperative MRCP is better." I disagree, if they want you to pick the crapper option of MRCP then LC don't put lap chole plus IOC on the list of options!
There are many many errors. There are also many questions where the explanation goes on to justify several of the possible answers without properly outlining why one answer is more appropriate than another!
Oh and I agree, I have never ever in my days seem so many stones in a 'normal' common bile duct.
Needs a LOT of work before it can compete with what is available currently online for free.
It is a shame there are such terrible inaccuracies, as the fundamental structure and approach is very good.
My favourite example on p273 - "Atomic beam polarised ion sources are 0.8 bilaterally and duplex scanning reveals mild bilateral...".
Seriously... "Atomic beam polarised ion sources"?!? Were the authors having a joke?
This book is well written and the questions are excellent with good comprehensive answers and references.
The authors have done an excellent job and must be congratulated. A good buy. Well worth the price.
