This pocket-sized reference gives immediate access to accurate, practical information on 21 subjects, with handy headers, as well as sleek tables and charts.

    Review quote
    The Nerdbook played a crucial role in preparation for national boards as well as in clinical rotations. Dr. Yin's ability to present information in such a concise manner makes the Nerdbook a must have for every veterinary student. --Chris Johnson, DVM, San Francisco Veterinary Specialists
