Editorial Reviews

Review

Doody's Book Review Service, Jose E. Torres, BS, MSc, MD, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics -- "Ranging from surgical physiology to the surgical subspecialties such as orthopedics and urology, this book covers the breadth of the field of general surgery. It is well organized and well written, and the chapters are concise and easy to read. The illustrations are simple, yet depict the subject matter effectively. "The authors have succeeded in providing a succinct review of general surgery. The reader is not inundated with unnecessary details and the important information in each topic is presented in a very understandable manner. The study questions are well written and are useful in reinforcing the material. This edition is much better than the previous one."-Doody's Book Review Service

Format: Paperback
Excellent book for the wards and for the shelf. The book is as comprehensive as you can get for a review book. Excellent organization of the chapters, and great meticulous detail. I love the fact that it starts every chapter with a review of the relevant anatomy and physiology. The book is so great that I ended up abandoning my use of surgery recall, as NMS was more than enough prepration for the pimp questions.

I purchased this book for use during my 12-week general surgery rotation. The book covered every topic very thoroughly in an easy-to-read/cram outline format that worked best for me (just like Goljan's Pathology Rapid Review).

Highly recommended for any MS3/MS4 general surgery rotation.

If you liked the bullet-point outline format of Goljian's Rapid Review Pathology, you will like this. If you hate bullet-points, then this book is NOT for you. It's a relatively hefty tome for a review book; you can't carry this in your pocket. But it's well worth a one-time-read-through to prepare for the shelf. It contains all the pertinent points regarding disease presentation and management. Although a few topics are a tad outdated, I doubt they really affected my test taking. I blazed through the entire book over the course of 2 weekends (skipping some low-yield sections). In addition to UWorld surgery questions + PreTest surgery questions, I got a 99 on the shelf. Definitely worth it if you can tolerate reading walls of text.

NMS Surgery is a comprehensive solution for all your 3rd year surgical inquiries. Very in depth and detailed.

If you're looking for something that's more clinically relevant, go for the NMS Surgery Case Book.

Its a great book. I nailed my shelf exam as well as a detailed presentation on portal htn because of this thing. Its a surgery book written in a format that is similar to Pathoma (outline format) that makes learning easy. Wonderfully organized and each portion contains a gracious amount of pertinent physiology/pathology to show you exactly how/why a particular procedure is indicated. The diagrams are wonderful but there are not enough of them. But hey, thats why google images exists. With this, you should do well on your surgery rotation. I also recommend a free online source called onlinemeded.com.

I am a 3rd year med student on my surgery rotation right now and though this book is definitely outdated, I find it is great for pimping questions. I look up the section on whatever surgeries I have the next day and usually can answer all the surgeons questions. Where I miss things is where there have been advances/additions since the publication of this book which is almost 10 years ago now. NMS surgery cases I hear is very good for oral boards and shelf exams but I haven't taken those yet.

This is more of a complaint for the Kindle edition specifically. Some of the figures are almost completely unreadable because the text is microscopic and zooming in does not help in the slightest (just gets pixelated). I haven't seen the print version of this book so I don't know how it is in there. The issues with the figures is rather silly, though.
