Useful supplement for pre-clinical/pathology studies
on 8 January 2017
I purchased this book in 2014 and used it extensively during my pre-clinical medical studies. The question and answer format of the book is excellent for getting a better grasp of concepts. I tried to study my first semester using Robbins Basic Pathology, and found that I had a harder time internalizing concepts and remembering small details. I decided to forego Basic Pathology entirely in later semesters and used this review book instead, and found that my grades improved on pathology exams.
It covers the same sections as med/big Robbins, and is laid out similarly. While I wouldn't use this book as a substitute for other resources, I found it to be a great supplement and I often recommend it to other students asking me for tips for pathology. Since first using this book, I tend to study using question banks rather than textbooks, and have found this to be a much more efficient way to study.
