Review quote

From student reviews of the previous edition: 'This is a very comprehensive paediatrics textbook. It serves well as a general paeds book for your rotation and will sit on your shelf as a reference book past graduation.' 'This is a really comprehensive book. It has everything you could want to know. It is well written, easy to understand and has lovely illustrations. There are highlighted tables which I liked and the Practical Points boxes are really informative.' From published reviews of the current edition: 'A great starter manual as an introduction to paediatrics. The format is user friendly and the practical points and clinical examples help readers solidify their learning.' Doody Enterprises, Inc. 'Practical Paediatrics is one of the core paediatric text books for medical students and postgraduate students studying for Diploma of Child Health. .There are Clinical Example boxes scattered within chapters that help keep the information clinically relevant, and the Practical Points boxes neatly summarise the chapter or section information.. There is also a chapter on Indigenous Culture and Health which includes a section on Maori View of Child Health and Illness. One of the best features is the online access which has the full text plus additional features. The additional features include questions in both review format, helpful for revision, and also questions in multi-choice test format with a timer-again a very useful feature for anyone sitting paediatric or child health examinations. There is also a drug database and an image library. This is very good value for money. Overall, this is an excellent textbook that is very relevant to undergraduate and postgraduate students studying paediatrics and child health.'
