Review quote

From customer reviews of the previous edition: 'This is an exceptional book, a must-have for any pharmacy undergraduate.' 'The book is great, especially for those who are doing their PSI registration exam.' 'This book is really good and has a wide range of pictures that help compare various disease states. The summary chapter questions and case studies are essential and allow the knowledge of that chapter to be reviewed and tested.' 'A must-have and recommended for all pharmacy students.' 'Excellent book - great photographs and tables - easy to read.' 'Helpful for a lot of the different conditions encountered in community pharmacy. Good book to refer to for pre-registration students needing clinical information.'show more
