Great book for undergrad O&G. Easy to navigate, read and retain information. Has the right amount of detail and yet very concise and to the point, and with no irrelevant topics. The first section on clinical presentations is very useful for OSCES and to get a feel for different history templates in O&G. This book made O&G much easier to learn and more enjoyable for me. Highly recommended.
NZ Medical Student [review of 1st edition]
The great thing about the Crash Course books is they will give you enough of the basics to scrape a pass in medical school. If, like me, you feel that diseased female anatomy is not life's great calling then this will give you enough knowledge to get by in the written exams, that said, if you do have an interest, it's not a bad book to start with as its well structured and provides a decent framework to expand upon. As with all the Crash Course books, it’s clear, easy to revise from, and accurate without getting bogged down in too much detail. For anything beyond MBBS though you will need a more detailed book.
