This type of question/answer book is exactly what I was looking for. As a rad onc resident, there have not been any similar books in the past. The format is exactly like previous Recall books I used as a med student. The only criticisms are that there are several errors. For instance, in the Wilms section is asks what subtypes of Wilms tumor exist, but list actually other types of renal tumor types that are not technically Wilms. There are other minor typos throughout, but for a first edition it's not bad. I used this to study for the in service exam this year, and I think was pretty high yield especially for more obscure topics like vulva, ovarian, etc. Can't wait for the 2nd edition!

This contains almost all of the ESSENTIAL BASIC information the resident is expected to know (up-to date as of the time of writing). Study it, and memorize it. There is a little bit of space on the pages to pencil in new trial/evidence info. A must-have.

used this to study for inservice and for oral exams. very thorough review and a nice complement to Roach book. Good thing is that it has a chapter on nearly anything you can think of (ie, hemangioblastoma, intraocular lymphoma, etc). Downside is descriptions of studies are not as concise/relevant as Roach.

I used this book along with the NCCN guidelines to prepare for my recertification in Radiation Oncology. While too detailed in some areas, especially pediatrics, I found it a great review for my exam. If I had been studying for the boards initially however, this is excellent. Some of the questions were right out of this book!

Well selected topics and details for quick review.Nowadays usual examination pattern in theory is mcq so why it has been written in old style question and answer format is surprising.Authors demonstrate good insight into core knowledge of each topic.

I think this is one of the greatest review books in Radiation Oncology and a must-have by every Rad Onc resident. I was and still a big fan of the "secrets" series and wished there was a "Radiation Oncology Secrets" book. This book is exactly what I was looking for. The question/answer format lays information in a simple way and certainly easier to remember. The content is great and it covers all the basic knowledge for any rad onc resident.

I highly recommend it.

This book is the first of its kind. A question-based review specifically for Radiation Oncology. If you're a resident, it's excellent for preparing for site-specific oral exams and boards. Really comprehensive information and presented in a consistent and helpful format. Good for primary review and for testing!

Order arrived in pristine condition and on time. As for the product, overall it is excellent.

Pros: Excellent review source that is well organized by disease site. References all the key studies and rationale for treatment. Has great depth, which is ideal not only for residents but for medical students interested in the field.

Cons: Thick book that can be difficult to carry around at all times. Some disease sites are less represented than others.
