3.0 out of 5 stars up to date to date and easy to review September 30, 2010
By Din
Format:Paperback
Written by a host of specialists from mainly Denver Childrens hospital, it serves as an excellent review of general pediatrics with enough detail to understand concepts. The other advantage is that this book is more frequently updated than other more comprehensive text books. This book is very good for medical students but probably lacks the detail required for pediatric residents preparing for the boards.
