“Superior to other case file books.”
--Chang-Kun Choi, Medical Student, Midwestern University School of Medicine
“Using clinical scenarios not only makes the reading fun and interesting, but it is far more engaging than sitting down with a bulleted text and reviewing detail after detail. This is a much better way to learn clinical information. I have not read a book like this before, and I certainly have enjoyed it.”
–-Eric Hossler, Medical Student, James H. Quillen College of Medicine
“I LOVED this book! I would recommend this book to all third-year students... The book uses a clinical approach and does not lose sight of the pathophysiology behind the disease -- GREAT preparation for being on the wards! The subject matter is also deceptively detailed, with much more information than one normally finds in a text of case files. The reader can use this book as either a rigorous self-test or a read-through introduction to the subject. Once again - a GREAT text!”
-–Elizabeth Johnston, Medical Student, Emory University

"The co-authors take a 'boards and wards' approach to this guide to cases chosen to help students in their studies for the pediatric shelf exam. Along with 60 pediatric cases with complete discussions the text includes clinical pearls and key points, a primer on approaching the pediatric patient and a systematic approach to both the needs of the patient and the needs of the exam. The cases include USMLE-style review questions and the index also serves as a handy clinical cross-reference. Cases include imagery as needed."--Sci-Tech Books News (Sci-Tech Book News 2006-12-01)
