Format: Paperback
A 500 page review of the 3000 page standard textbook in SurgPath - is that possible?

The basic structure of the review is based on the 31 chapters in Rosai's two-volume textbook. This includes the pastel-colored chapter coding and the sub structuring of each chapter (eg. neuromuscular system with CNS, peripheral nerves, skeletal muscle). In contrast to the other available multiple-choice reviews on Anatomic Pathology (~1800 questions: Lefkowitch 1st ed. 2006; ~600 questions: Sternberg's by DiPatre 1st ed. 2005), the format here is mainly based on true/false statements. This "new" design of ~4000 questions provides an interesting transition between the "standard" MC questions and the "rapid-fire question-answer facts" provided in the Pathology Board Review by Roberts (3rd ed. 2006; over 4000 question-answer combinations). The main difference to the aforementioned review is, that the pages containing the questions are separated from the answers. While this layout prevents "cheating", the format of the answers does not allow independent reading of only the answers (eg. some refer to the phrasing in the question). Therefore, the page in the main textbook is provided - which is really helpful.

Why not five stars?

Well, in those chapters with many subchapters [eg. Gastrointestinal tract (GIT) or Female reproductive system], the separation of question and answers does not allow quick and easy look-up. Example: a question #8 in the GIT sub-chapter "Small bowel" requires exact tracking in the answer section to this chapter, as there are answers #8 in the subchapter esophagus, stomach, small bowel, appendix, colon and anus. This is more of a layout problem but can be annoying as reading the answer of a different question distracts quite a bit.

Format: Paperback
The format of the questions is T and F ..which is not very helpful for the MCQ exams...however, the authors tried to highlight the most important points in each chapter. I believe that these points are the ones that every pathologist should know (especially those sitting for Boards). If you know how to use the book in an efficient way by focusing on the explanations and reading about the points, you may benefit a lot from it.

I like this book very much, I was using it when I was reading the big text book (Rosi and Ackerman surgical pathology), without this question book I might not be able to read the entire Rosi's book. It helped me to pass the board exam. But I have to say that as every book written by many authors, some chapters are better than others. If you are reading the (Rosi and Ackerman surgical pathology) get this question book; I am not sure how it is going to be if you read this book only with out using the main text book; my evaluation for this book is based on reading it with the main text book.

Format: Paperback
The book is entirely true-false questions which makes its utility limited... There are, however, some nice photographs in it. It should make a nice companion to Rosai. I'm hoping it's truly helpful for board study...
