From reviews of the previous edition: ‘This really is an excellent medical textbook … Easily covers undergraduate medicine.’‘Pocket Essentials is a great little book to review the night before you start on a rotation. It is small enough that you can easily read over the chapter and then appear on the ward with a good idea of what is going on.’‘In short this book is concise, succinct and gets straight to the point.’‘This book summarises everything you need to know: causes, diagnoses and treatments.’‘I am finding this book very helpful and more importantly very concise. It has most things you need to know about common clinical pathologies.’‘… I turned to Pocket Essentials of Clinical Medicine as my clinical medicine reference guide - and what a guide! An excellent book, which gives you the clinical features, investigations and management for a whole variety of different illnesses. The book is clearly laid out, and even has normal blood chemistry values at the end. Do yourself a favour and buy this book!’‘This mini paperback is a must for anyone studying medicine. It gives all the information one would need and all without the pain of carrying around a large book.’‘I liked this book … it was useful having a smaller reference book … to carry around on wards etc. - it's more digestible and easier to follow than big K&C, and gives a little more background than the Oxford Handbook - and I know people who use it to revise for finals.’
Undergraduate and trainee doctors needing a quick, accurate and authoritative reference.
