Amazing Scientific reference. April 13, 2011
This textbook is an excellent pocket resource. As a student, I use it 20x more than the big Robbins because it is so easy to use. I can actually take it to class. It doesn't replace the big text for detail, but you will definitely use it more. It is loaded with all the essentials. I purchased this book about two months into my MS2 year in Medical School; I received it from ecampus in a very good condition and in the estimated arrival date.
