Editorial Review for Kumar and Clark’s Pass Finals PDF
‘Simply, I couldn’t have asked for a better guidebook than this . if you’re the no-nonsense type and want to get straight to business but you need a starting point, here it is no doubt.’
‘I really liked the bullet-point layout, it makes it easy to revise from. The format was good, going through clinical symptoms, investigations, management and complications – with diagrams.’
‘Essentially, each chapter is summarised in an easy-to-read format with questions at the end of each chapter to test your knowledge. Good diagrams, and well written. Easy to pick up and use at your leisure without having to re-read reams of text. Can’t think of any medical topic that isn’t covered in this book. Great for cramming before exams.’
‘Has the fear set in yet? I was an absolute wreck until I read Pass Finals, and, as the title suggests, one reading of this will see you through. Although based on Kumar & Clark, the book is fantastic on its own. Whether your course is more academic than clinical or your finals are OSCE, essays, long or short case, Pass Finals teaches you, reminds you and tests you on what you need to know. Remember common things present commonly! ECGs CXRs and even how to answer questions the best way are all included. This gets an instant 5/5 for readability, quality/content and usefulness for revision!’
well the book is just a list of some points from the various diseases in a very and many times dangerously short format. It’s better to use this book only for revision after getting the grasp of the clinical entities from another book. Surely there are a lot of better books for rapid review like medicine recall.
- This book is indeed a very useful one adopting a list style for easy memorisation. To believe, however, that it will get you through finals alone is risky to say the least. A good idea is to use it conjunction with another more detailed book, the oxford handbook of clinical medicine for example.
Some chapters are not as good as others: Dermatology is especially poor i feel.
What would really make this book more special is if it contained the other specialties – obs & gynae, paediatrics, opthalmology, ENT etc …with detail only as much as what is appropriate for the MBBS syllabus.
overall, not a must – but a good memory tool.
