Published Reviews

    "This is the fifth edition of a question book designed to prepare residents for boards and specifically the ABSITE. This book covers a wide spectrum of surgical topics starting from the basics of surgical physiology to the fundamentals of surgical technology. The latest edition uses the format of select the best answer, which enables readers to definitively learn the correct information.

    The change to the format of select the best answer has made learning a lot easier. The information delivery has been simplified and this new version will do a better job preparing residents for the ABSITE and for the board examination." - Raphael C Sun, MD(University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics), Excerpts from Doody’s review service
