Our customer reviews

I wasn't that impressed with this book. The layout is just not nice, it's not separated into paragraphs and headings, like all the information is just lumped in. Also, really wish they'd have covered each system examination in more detail, after all, it is a book designed for medical students studying for paediatric exam (including clinical exam!) However, there aren't any great paeds books out there it would seem. This one may be the best of a bad bunch?show more
