I loved the Student Core books! They were easily digestible and broken down by subject, which made it easier to take just one book with me each day, instead of lugging around a 700-page medical book. It also made it easier to look up topics, I’d just pull the book I needed and go.
I love that what would be a chapter in another medical textbook is it’s own small book, so I could take just the booklet that I needed on the go.
What makes this product valuable for medical students is that you have some of the very best experts, folks teach for a living, and who've taken all that experience about what's important and distilled it down into one volume. Really, every piece of information in the Student Core is golden.
The student products are not mere lists of facts. These are true review textbooks written with the purpose of ensuring students truly understand and enjoy learning the high-yield information they contain.
