""The perfect adjunct to any textbook of clinical medicine. In the months before finals it is as essential as the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine"
"Oxford Cases is clearly presented and helpful for young doctors learning about diagnosis. Diagnosis is often a skill that new doctors find difficult. This well designed and logically organised book describes diagnostic reasoning in the assessment of patients presenting with 29 common symptoms, from headache to leg ulcer. As a GP who graduated in 1977 I also found the book helpful in reviewing my knowledge and learning about modern practical medicine.

"This book is not like the other boring textbooks out there, and really entices the readers to think and challenge themselves. This book has improved my history taking skills 10-fold. All my friends want to know what my secret is!

"It basically mirrors bedside learning on the wards and is a fantastic tool, whether you are preparing for Phase 1 OSCEs, starting clinic rotation or preparing for your finals. The Murmur, The Brighton and Sussex Medical School Student Newspaper"
