"Superior to other case file books."
--Chang-Kun Choi, Medical Student, Midwestern University School of Medicine

"Using clinical scenarios not only makes the reading fun and interesting, but it is far more engaging than sitting down with a bulleted text and reviewing detail after detail. This is a much better way to learn clinical information. I have not read a book like this before, and I certainly have enjoyed it."
- Eric Hossler, Medical Student, James H. Quillen College of Medicine

"I LOVED this book! I would recommend this book to all third-year students... The book uses a clinical approach and does not lose sight of the pathophysiology behind the disease -- GREAT preparation for being on the wards! The subject matter is also deceptively detailed, with much more information than one normally finds in a text of case files. The reader can use this book as either a rigorous self-test or a read-through introduction to the subject. Once again - a GREAT text!"
- Elizabeth Johnston, Medical Student, Emory University
