Essential Notes for Medical and Surgical Finals

    Covering both medicine and surgery, this book is the essential revision companion for all medical students and a valuable source of knowledge for junior doctors at all stages of their training. It is useful both in the early preparatory phase of revision as well as for last minute cramming, and for use on the wards. This book divides the medical and surgical curricula into over twenty key sections and concisely covers the relevant information for each, including definitions, aetiology, key clinical features, investigations, and management. Examinations for undergraduate medical students and at postgraduate level can take a number of forms, including multiple choice and extended matching questions, single best answers, short notes, vivas and OSCEs. The book provides the necessary information to tackle all these exam formats successfully, as well as to manage each topic competently should it arise in clinical practice. Compact and user-friendly, this book is the ideal revision tool.
