This invaluable pathology study aid adopts the proven concept of Mind Mapping - invented by Tony Buzan - which results in increased confidence, saves precious studying time and gives the student a sense of achievement. Conventional textbooks present information in such a way that the key words are not always obvious to the student. Research shows that the key words are important in learning as they create and reinforce learning pathways. The key words in this book are presented in the context of pathways which connect to form maps of each topic. The information on each topic is thus connected to provide a framework for revision and learning. Studies show that revision of key words creates and strengthens words associations, and helps the brain to process further information on the topic faster. Psychologists call this effect the 'semantic prime'. "The Mind Maps" provide an overview of the subjects, and are designed to 'prime' the brain to remember the information.

Our customer reviews

I love these mind maps they make things so much easier for the visual learner like myself. You can complement your maps by adding extra notes from your pathology text book. I am definetely going to purchase those for medicine and surgery. Excellent for quick review when your time is limited and your need to have the big picture quickly. I would recommend to any visual-spatial learner, It truly helps when the information at medical school are thrown at you within seconds. I only wish they were also available in Microbiology, Immunology and Pharmacology since these subjects require a whole lot of memorisation.show more
