Histology and Cell Biology: Examination and Board Review 5e

By Paulsen, Douglas ISBN: 9780071476652 Price: AUS$60.00/NZ$65.00 Pub Date: April 2010 No of pages: 384 Subject category: Test Preparation & Review Market: Medical and Allied Health students taking a course in Histology Description The author, with his attention to detail and years of teaching experience, has designed a finely-tuned, concise, and complete review of histology and cell biology that allows students to significantly cut study time while maximizing learning. This user-friendly book makes it easy to individualize study sessions for efficient, optimal results. Histology and Cell Biology helps students quickly pinpoint weaknesses in understanding and knowledge with self-assessment questions and practice tests. It then gives them what they need to know in an easy-to-remember format, packed with learning-boosting devices such as objectives and synopses. Paulsen gives the rather abstract field of histology a vivid approach which covers just what is required for medical students to know in reviewing for course and board exams. The long-term success of the LANGE series of text and review books, along with the re-emphasis on cell biology in medical schools, should insure the continued success of this title. The current format of the book includes many internal references in the form of callouts to explanatory text, tables, or images. Often the reference is to material presented in previous or later chapters to improve the value of the book as a review while limiting redundancy. Similar references are included with all of the answers to the practice questions. This is an important and unique attribute of the book. Key features Ideal review for courses, exams, and the USMLE Expanded coverage of cell biology Numerous study-enhancing tools Integrative questions that forge need-to-know links among topics

Max YieldTM questions and Diagnostic Final Exam. Focusing questions, objectives, and quizzes Many USMLE-type case-study questions More than 1,000 self-test questions

First Aid for the Emergency Medicine Oral Boards helps prepare for the the oral board exam, which differs significantly from the written board exam. The oral board exam tests patient management skills and the physician's ability to provide rapid, safe, and competent patient care. The oral board exam simulates actual patient encounters to test your ability to gather information, consider likely diagnoses (with a focus on potential life and organ threats), institute emergent therapy, and execute a diagnostic and therapeutic plan. The exam focuses on core topics, critical conditions, and the ruling out of infrequent but potentially life threatening conditions. First Aid for the Emergency Medicine Oral Boards will teach the reader to think on his or her feet, just like they need to do for the interactive and public oral exam process by explaining the test, reviewing critical management algorithms, and providing more than 50 case simulations for review.

Key features The first half of the book provides a complete review of the basics, from airway management and shock-trauma to organ-system emergencies in adults and children. The following icons appear within this information to increase a test taker's score: --On exam day --Critical actions --Further interventions

Mnemonics and keywords sprinkled throughout the text facilitate focus on core facts, while clinical vignettes at the end of each chapter allow students to reflect on the topic they have just read. Features Rapid Recall Q&A format simulates flashcards in a book. Includes High-Yield USMLE Essentials More "Make a Diagnosis" Vignettes Reviewed by students who aced Step 1 Keywords and mnemonics highlighted throughout the text. 25% new material based on current USMLE content
