This book is great! Its small size keeps it from being intimidating, and it is short enough that you can cram two nights before the exam. (I did!) In our classes, the attending nephrologists swore by this book. They use it on their floors to teach their nephrology fellows and residents about these often-misunderstood topics. It clearly answers most of your questions about how to keep acids and bases straight as well as the guidelines for hypokalemia, hyperkalemia, hyponatremia, and hypernatremia. For a smaller book, it packs a big punch!

This is another great edition to the MRS series that i think is a must have for medical students. I havent finished reading the book yet but so far i really like it. Fluids and acid-base physiology and pathology is one of the most important concepts in medicine. Most text books i've read offer a very detailed and hard to understand approach to these concepts. This book breaks it down easily and simplifies important concepts. That for me, is the most important factor to consider when selecting any review book. I highly recommend this book to all 3rd year medical students still doing lectures or already in their rotations. The book is a quick and fast revisit to one of the most commonly used concepts in medicine, irrespective of your field in medicine.

Very concise and well written book. As an RN in a Medical ICU, acid-base disorders, sodium and other electrolyte disorders are commonplace. This book helps tremendously in understanding this subject

I'm starting emergency medicine residency this fall. I studied this book during my renal module in 2nd year of med school, referenced it through 3rd year rotations, and now I've just worked through it again in preparation for upcoming rotations in the ICU, emergency room, and for STEP III. It takes big, daunting, and IMPORTANT topics, and gives a beautiful framework for approaching them in clinical scenarios. It's easy to go through this book in just a few days, and I feel great being fresh on this subject matter as I head into residency. There's no wasted space here but it provides enough repetition and practice questions throughout to allow for substantial review during 1 read-through. Dr. Preston is my hero.

This book has almost NO pictures or cartoons or clever mneumonics and stories that made "Clinical Microbiology Made Ridiculously Simple" such a great book. This one is short and concise but doesn't really offer any "simple" ways to understand or even memorize the material. I am medical student, and I did not find this book helpful.

This book was a really good book to make acid-base interpretation easier to understand. I would suggest it to any student that is having trouble understanding the subject.
