Customer reviews

By SEAN MCISAAC 06 Aug 2012 5

I highly recommend this book. Dr Senanayake has created a very readable and informative resource, that is nearly as valuable as gaining experience on the wards directly. Pick up any chapter and you are sure to gain many new useful facts that will help both in your final years of med school and during internship!
