Main description:

Not only does Paediatrics at a Glance provide an ideal introduction to paediatrics during the first two years of med school, it then details just enough information (minus waffle) on anything you may be examined on during your paediatric attachment, and makes life a great deal easier at finals time than revising from a large core textbook. Includes a brand new companion website at www.wiley.com/go/paediatricsataglance featuring new self-assessment questions
