Editorial Reviews

Review

REVIEW OF PREVIOUS EDITION

"A classic primer of medical education...A current, succinct, and easily comprehensible text, which covers the essence of human pathology. Medical students and course directors will certainly appreciate the new edition. The authors should be commended on the continued improvement of a respected teaching resource." - Modern Pathology

REVIEW OF CURRENT EDITION

"The book maximises on presentation by using clear headings and sub headings, good quality colour plates, diagrams and tables. In common with many other Elsevier books, it's attractively presented. The authors are keen for the reader to learn about the advances in the field and have included details of these breakthroughs. The pathology textbook I bought as a student was just under half the price of this one and was left mostly on the shelf being largely unreadable with monochrome only illustrations and no extra features. That makes this book good value for money I would say!

Easy to read and understand.

Has a little more detail than you need in med school, but not so much that it's overwhelming like the thicker Robbins book.

I recommend this book over the larger version of this book for the average medical student.

This is the book to purchase while studying pathology during medical school. It explains pathological concepts,and related topics such as embryology and biochemistry) in a detailed manner. At the same time this book manages to be concise enough so that you can read while completing other course work during medical school. Having on-line access to this book on Student Consult is convenient so that you do not have to carry the book around with you all the time. I recommend this book over the larger version of this book for the average medical student.

Its a well written text, but for the typical medical student it might be overkill for many topics. With that said, it does provide one with a good background on all topics pathology

This textbook really represents the most widely used text for teaching pathology to medical students. It is an excellent source for a beginner to pathology with friendly text that is fairly easy to read and comprehensive enough to be used as a reference. However, the text's downfall lies in not being written for the appropriate audience. For medical students, time constraints make this a beast of a source to read thoroughly, and reading a chapter 2-3 times to memorize it, is out of the question. Other difficulties lie in that even though this book has been trimmed from the much thicker Robbin's pathology book, minor details that seem relatively mundane are abundant, and it makes it difficult to pick out important information. This is compounded by the fact that important information isn't necessarily emphasized for medical students, and there isn't a good review section at the end of each chapter. Taken together, this book sadly seems geared toward an undergraduate expereince rather than a medical school one. I cannot justify recommending this source to medical students; however, it would be an excellent text to others taking a course in pathology. To remedy problems for medical students, I would recommend using the pocket version of this book as a review source. I would even bouster that the pocket version is comprehensive enough to use as a primary source, and it will help limit details of relative non-importance.

This book is good and has a lot of knowledge in each chapter. However, the information can sometimes be a little to limiting in one area and excessive in another. Sometimes it's a hard read due to its slight disorganization. Overall, it is good to have around when trying to get a little more in depth knowledge about pathological diseases and cases.

much easier and faster to read than big Robbins. probably leaves out a few details but it's a good tradeoff when you're taking several classes with no time to read it all. compatible with all the materials that go with big Robbins, like the review book and the atlas.
