Very good text book. I bought it for a nephew (14 yrs old) who is showing an interest in medicine and I would like to guide him toward surgery. He has all ready went through the anatomy and biology medical books I've provided him with excellent retention.

This thick book contains a good mix and great deal of information, but the writing style is terrible. At every step, the authors go to great lengths to use the most verbose and indulgent language possible. Cut all the fluffy verbiage out and you would have a considerably clearer book that contains 100% of the information in far fewer pages.

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.

A very dense read but if you want to know the whole picture of different surgeries then this is a great book

I bought this for my 3rd year med school Surgery rotation. It ended up being a bit too much for studying for the exam, but as a resource for reading up on the details of a particular subject, it was great. It also provides very useful diagrams and tables.

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.

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.

This book is very well written and easy to understand. It does not go in great depth, but help to understand surgery.

Hard to read this over the course of a general surgery rotation due to bulk. All in all a decent book to just look up certain things that i have questions on.
