Brilliant book. Very useful for first year students and I will definitely be adopting for them. It has some very helpful information for them which is easy to follow
The is an excellent resource, the case studies within are great for the student, as they use examples of how the reading material can be applied within their practice.
Very handy when teaching clinical skills. The quiz at the end of each skill to test knowledge very popular with students especial as its a way to recap on the skill.
