Review quote

From reviews of the previous edition:

'. the ideal book for a 4-week attachment in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. This book covers all you need to know in a succinct and comprehensive manner. It clearly explains the practical aspect of the speciality with good coverage of the clinical features of core conditions and subsequent management. At the back of book are useful exam questions and answers which is extremely helpful during revision time. .This is an excellent book to carry with you on wards.'

'This is a great little book which does exactly what it says on the tin; perfect as a quick read before clinic.'

'Of all so called 'pocket sized' books, this one has got to be at the top of my list. Very few books can hold my focus for long but this book is actually readable by my standards! The information per topic is enough to bat away the most interrogating of consultants, and there is a nice sequence to all of the chapters with the more straightforward topics at the beginning. So it's absolutely ideal for the student starting on their O&G placement with no idea about menorrhagia! . For revision purposes it's great. Personally, I think this book alone gives enough to get through exams!'

Our customer reviews

This book is another sibling in the 'Kumar and Clark Family'. The size of the book is 'pocket size' and actually small enough to bring onto wards, similar to the Churchill's pocketbooks. The diagrams and pictures are greyscale + red. I quite enjoyed learning from this book - as it keep things concise and simple, while keeping in prose form. Covering everything from history, examination, gynae and obstetrics, and along with procedures and emergency management. I especially liked the chapter on family planning and sexual health. It explains the different options of conception and explains the differences between each in a very succinct way. Investigations and management are also explicitly explained and categorized in appropriate subcategories, which is perfect of OSCE or for case presentations. The obstetrics chapter is also well written. Antenatal and intrapartum care is well explained and dedicated pages to examples of CTG are inserted appropriately in the book. If you need a book for the wards, clinics, or for quick reference, this book is perfect. However, if you want a book that covers related pathology or histology by images, this book does not cover it.
