Essential Haematology (Essentials)

This was my medical school textbook for a four week module on hematology. What I liked most about the book is that it only presented essential information. The absence of superfluous text allowed me the time to regularly read the assigned chapters while also studying the rest of the material for this class and other classes. I also found the book to be relatively easy to comprehend. (However, this is definitely not on the layman’s level, and a good requisite knowledge of a first year medical school curriculum is necessary before reading.) Virtually every pathologic aspect of hematology is covered in the text: hemopoietic development, anemias, lymphomas and leukemias, coagulation disorders, etc. It also covers some treatments for the various diseases and pathologic processes. This book was an integral part to my studying and understanding hematology. It will definitely sit on my reference shelf for years to come.

I loved this book. I found it extremely useful in my second year of med school and continued to reference it while reviewing for USMLE 1 and during my ward rotations.
It is concise and has great illustrations. It has a nice balance of basic science materials and clinical correlations.

Case Studies in Infectious Disease

Case Studies in Infectious Disease

Case Studies in Infectious Disease

this book is GREAT! It is very informative by providing case studies for all of the diseases within the book. The case studies really help you to narrow in on what signs and symptoms the patient may show. This book also shows x-rays and pictures of the disease with the case studies and explains each of them. After the case study the book will give a question and then give an in-depth answer to it. At the end of the disease section there is a short quiz. This book has helped me on so many different infectious diseases in nursing school to really help me apply the theoritcal knowledge! It also has me interested in becoming an infectious disease nurse!

This book might be too technical for someone without a background in immunology. It was the recommended textbook for a graduate class I’m taking. It has forty chapters and each chapter is a different infectious disease. Each chapter starts with a small case study and then it explains the disease step by step. It tells you the microorganism, how it damages the body, how the body responds, possible symptoms and complications, treatment and prevention. Nurses will get minimal use out of this book as they do not treat, diagnose, nor test for pathogens. But Medical students and Microbiology students will want to keep this on their shelf. The book also comes with an online glossary available at the publishers website, unfortunately not all the words they claim to be in the glossary are (but most are and with Google you can find the rest). Each chapter also has a summary for those who are too lazy to study and a few end questions to see if you understood the topic.
