    Review:

    "This book covers all the examinations needed for a clinical medical student. The text is clear and the illustrations are good."
    Medical Student - UK
    "The quality of illustration is excellent – from the line drawings to the radiographs and colour plates...In summary, this is a book that must be indispensable to medical students who are starting their clinical work but wouldn’t be out of place as a refresher for GPs in the surgery."
    Dr Jeremy Sager, Univadis, Oct 2008
