Veterinary Nursing Self-Assessment


  • Julie Ouston, MA, Vet MB, MRCVS, PGCE, Director, MYF Training Ltd, Hampshire, UK

Reflecting changes to the National Occupational Standards, the new edition of this popular self-test guide includes revised content, new material, and an additional discussion on why an incorrect answer might have been chosen and why confusion could have arisen in the reader's mind. A companion to Lane and Cooper's Veterinary Nursing, this practical resource follows the structure of the main text and includes answers that function as mini-tutorials, with clear rationales for the correct answer and learning opportunities for the student.
