Memorizing Medicine: A Revision Guide: Second Edition (Paperback)Paul Bentley (author)
- We can order this
Each of the main topics in general medicine is presented as a mini-tutorial, using cartoons, hierarchies, and mnemonics, thus breaking down dense text into 'bite-size' chunks and creating a framework for effective learning, whether for clinical practice or taking exams. The mnemonics themselves have been devised to be relevant to the topic - the causes of atrial fibrillation follow a form of A.T.R.I.A.L. S.W.I.T.C.H.; the various causes of liver disease are T.A.B.O.O.S.
Memorizing Medicine can be used as a general medical textbook in its own right, or may be used as a bridge between standard textbooks and self-test revision guides. It is an invaluable revision aid and is equally suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate medical exams, as well as for any practising physician who wishes to refresh their knowledge.

5 Stars: Excellent revision book
This book is based on the nmemonic method of learning. It is an excellent revision book for finals and even MRCP. Clear, good diagrams and relevant. Highly recommended.
Amazon customer review, Oct 2007
This is a brilliant compendium of the major fields of medicine in easy-to-digest, and, more importantly, easy-to-memorize formats. Injected with wit, humour, and serious medical facts, readers will be able to ingest and digest ample amounts of knowledge.
Doody's Book Review Service
The relevance and value of this new study aid to anyone preparing for a clinical academic examination is obvious. It will be a significant tool in the collection of devices needed to support if not actually guarantee a pass grade in finals. One may recommend it without hesitation and congratulations are due to the author on his enterprise and major contribution to learning medicine.

What more can I say, this is an excellent book. Supplements your core clinical medicine text really well. Wonderful mnemonics throughout, highly recommended! I no longer use my notes now!
Amazon customer review, Jan 2008
There are mnemonics and acronyms galore on every page, such as 'GUCCI'S VAGINA', not to mention their corresponding images ... It is a useful aid for revision, presenting information in a grouped and organised fashion ... a visual learner should definitely benefit from this book.
