Review quote

This book should be used by students once subjects are learnt using their textbooks and lecture notes; this will then test their knowledge and understanding. This book is a must-have for trainee dental nurses; my peers and I working towards our National Diploma have found it extremely informative and an invaluable revision aid. (Vital, 13 September 2012)
