I would love to have the time to actually sit down and read this book properly. But a surgery clerkship simply does not afford enough time for that - there are simply not enough hours available when you work 15-17 hour days and were also hoping to eat and sleep. I cannot imagine why some clerkship directors feel that students should read this book. The only saving grace is that there are some 600 practice questions available on the publisher's website that you can access with the scratch-off code included inside the front cover.

This was a required text for my class. I found it easy to read and was pretty straight foward. Although, I don't know how much any of the information has changed over the years.Published on January 19, 2013 by John
Great book for General Surgry rotation. Gives the basics and important principles necessary for the mock-board. Recommend just reading the topics relevant to your lectures.Published on December 30, 2012 by David Sugiyama
This book is very well written and easy to understand. It does not go in great depth, but help to understand surgery.Published on December 2, 2012 by Debra cail
