Portable and user-friendly, this condensed version of "Rubin's Pathology, Fourth Edition" is an excellent adjunct learning tool for medical students studying pathology. It's a great quick introduction to all the important pathology concepts that medical students need to know. The book is clinically oriented and written in clear, understandable language, with numerous diagrams and tables to help students grasp concepts quickly. Chapters in "Lippincott's Pocket Pathology" parallel those in "Rubin's Pathology, Fourth Edition", so that students can transfer between the two books as their study schedules permit. A bonus CD-ROM contains over 300 full-color images from "Rubin's Pathology, Fourth Edition".
