"Fast Track Surgery: General Vascular and Urology" is written for medical students and junior doctors on surgical rotation during the clinical years of med school or starting off on rotation. It focuses on most of what readers can expect to see on the wards, and is written in a question and answer format covering the most commonly asked questions. The important, must know facts are presented in a concise, accessible way. Also included are questions on clinically oriented anatomy, which will prove indespensible while in the operating theatre with the Consultant! This book is full of useful tips on how to survive the surgical rotation, and mnemonics to make the cramming process a little easier.
