Excellent boook March 12, 2011
I rented this rental textbook and I think that this is a great book and I should have had it earlier. It presents information in a very concise manner so that review is made easier.
The text provides balanced coverage between educational concepts and clinical practice. For a graduate of 6years, this was a great review book. It could have gone a little more in detail, so I also read CURRENT medical diagnosis along with it.
