This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It is part of a series of books that reflects the trend towards a core curriculum and self-directed learning. The content is restricted to the 'must know' core information presented in a synoptic style. The diagrams that support the text are in a style that the reader can remember and reproduce in examinations. Each chapter ends with a selection of self-assessment material and full explanatory answers. These consolidate and expand on the chapter contents.
Concise synoptic (not telegraphic text).
Appropriate self-assessment material.
Only covers core, so student knows the whole book is essential.
Includes key objectives.
Contains simple and memorable diagrams for reproduction in exams.
Ideal for learning as well as examination review, specifically trying to stimulate the student into assessing his/her own knowledge.
The books in the series both complement other available major texts, but also contain enough material to stand in the own right.

"These books are brilliant for taking on the road out to peripheral hospital placements, and cover all the essentials (plus a little bit more) on all the key topics. They have plenty of information to help explain those topics and subjects you see on the wards/in theatre.When time is a little short, and you simply need fast hard facts in an easy to read yet thorough way these books are simply perfect. I have no doubt in recommending them to my friends or any other medical student." Medical Student, Bristol University, UK (series review)
