This book is extremely helpful for MBBS majors. I have read many other books but this one has a very simple and easily understandable language. The chapters are also precise and informative, not too long, and boring. Perfect study buddy!– by Koushiki


Very good textbook for students and teachers who don’t have time to read elaborate, unnecessary stories before the main points of the topic they are trying to study. A very handy book for easy revision. I recommend it as a companion to Medical and Para-medical students.– by OJBILLIONS
