Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is intended to emphasize the principles to be applied in managing general surgery patients. For a student who is in a rush to prepare for a particular case or problem, this is a good way to become knowledgeable quickly. It follows the medical student objective format as put forth by the boards and accreditation agency, using problem-based cases which tie together symptoms and signs with a disease. It is a well done book and certainly accomplishes its goal of providing students with a large amount of information about a particular type of problem. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service (Doody's 2008-12-22)

Format: Paperback
I agree with one of the other reviewers that this book contained a lot of interesting cases, but it was not particularly helpful for the shelf. I had 3 questions that were straight out of this book, but the vast majority of the questions can't be answered using this as a resource. I had a lot of heme/lab values on my test and 4-5 ethical questions where i felt at least three answers seemed quite reasonable. I don't really know how to study for those- they were situations that I never encountered on the wards or in lectures. I think a medicine review book probably would have been more helpful for most of the surgery shelf.

One more thing, for that guy who posted about "70% of questions" from the shelf being in this book, he also had that same quote about the OB/GYN case files. I think he's wrong on both counts.

Though this book remains one of the best surgery shelf prep books out there, it does not include as much of the shelf content as I had hoped. Be sure to supplement with another book as using this as your primary source will leave you scratching your head at many shelf questions.

Format: Paperback
Good if you just want to learn surgery related information. Bad for the shelf exam. Irrelevant information. Will make you wonder if you studied. Perhaps suitable for surgical residency pimping.

Case Files is extremely helpful for all rotations and surgery is no exception. The charts in the book are helpful and I frequently referenced them. It also included surgical cases that I did not come across in other books, which made me feel like Case Files ensured I didn't miss any major topic. It is also helpful because it takes the "medical" approach that the questions on the shelf exam take. Case Files cannot be your only source, but it is definitely a must-have.

Fantastic book that is easy to read and very comprehensive. A lot of people favor Surgical Recall, but I just didn't like that one. Can't tell you why exactly. Something about its size and outline-style format. In my opinion, stick with Case Files.

Good cases for the shelf exam. Would not use this as a primary source for the OR.
