The first outline-style ABSITE review book – and still the best!
For years, general surgery residents have relied on The ABSITE Review for a comprehensive, memory-prompting approach to exam preparation. The Fifth Edition continues to use a streamlined outline and list format to effectively prepare you for certification or recertification with the American Board of Surgery In-Training Examination. The proven, time-saving format allows you to spend more time studying important facts and less time searching for them. Thoroughly revised, comprehensive content ensures that you’ll be up to date on every topic found on the exam – from basic science to clinical knowledge in general surgery as well as surgical subspecialties.
Full-color illustrations, tables, and algorithms support memory-prompting lists and outlines, making the most of your study time.
Revised material covers what you’ll see on the most recent ABSITE exam, including new guidelines on hemostatic resuscitation, damage control surgery, breast cancer management and more.
High-yield, comprehensive coverage reflects the current ABSITE and can be used independently of other study materials.
