User Reviews

  1. This is a good book to act as a first pass reminder of what you learned in medical school. I found myself realising it didn’t go into much detail about important aspects of physiology and I had to go look it up in old text books. Ill use it
  2. Excellent revision-focused textbook that emphasises the links between basic science and clinical medicine. Its succinct style and clear explanations make this book an efficient learning resource. The tables are especially good as they cover everything you need to know about each topic in a clear, easy-to-learn format. The book is set to cover basic medical science at the level of the MRCP, but would also be really useful for interested clinical medical students or doctors at other levels.
