`Review from previous edition Finally the new edition has arrived and in short it's brilliant.'
Northwing (Sheffield Medical School Magazine) June 2004
`This bad boy, chummily referred to as the "salt'n'vinegar" does exactly what it says on the packet, delivering all the specialties you will encounter in life as a clinical medical student. ... OHCS is concisely planned and organised, with a fantastic index. The wonderful dangly book-mark bits
are there as ever, and OHCS is also usefully cross-referenced with the cheese'n'onion. ... I cannot over-emphasise how helpful this book is during our specialty blocks in 4th and 5th years. Highly recommended.'
SURGO, Glasgow University Medical Journal
`... an invaluable quick reference guide, either as a reminder of a condition or for more detailed facts. ... This is a book that has stood, and will no doubt continue to stand the test of time.'
`For less than the price of a slap-up meal out, you too can be the proud owner of the OHCS - a bargain if ever I saw one.'
Dr JM Sager
