Review quote

"Money extremely well spent, I would recommend it to anyone trying to pass finals at the moment." (Sphincter, Liverpool Medical Studentsa Society Magazine) "This is an excellent pocket--sized edition, which will prove to be invaluable in revision for the membership examinations... A useful reference book, both for learning and revision. It achieves what many MCQ books fail to deliver -- the complete answer, not just the reason why a stem is correct..." (Barts and the London Chronicle, Autumn 2000) "...It is tight--lipped. It neatly summarises each field/subject. It uses tables and bulleted sentences. It fits neatly into a pocket. It tells you nothing that isna t essential. Ita s about internal medicine. It does exactly what is says on the cover." (Black Bag -- Bristol Medical School Gazette, 2000)
