This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It is part of a series of books that reflects the trend towards a core curriculum and self-directed learning. The content is restricted to the ‘must know' core information presented in a synoptic style. The diagrams that support the text are in a style that the reader can remember and reproduce in examinations. Each chapter ends with a selection of self-assessment material and full explanatory answers. These consolidate and expand on the chapter contents.
Concise synoptic (not telegraphic text).
Appropriate self-assessment material.
Only covers core, so student knows the whole book is essential.
Includes key objectives.
Contains simple and memorable diagrams for reproduction in exams.
Ideal for learning as well as examination review, specifically trying to stimulate the student into assessing his/her own knowledge.
The books in the series both complement other available major texts, but also contain enough material to stand in the own right.
