  • Break out boxes which contain essential key knowledge
  • Clinical cases to help you understand the material in a clinical context
  • Unique graphic narratives which are especially useful for visual learners
  • End of chapter answers to the starter questions

5 Star Reviews:

"Overall, I think that this is an excellent book for both medical students and even core medical trainees alike who may want to brush up on their renal knowledge. An excellent text at a very reasonable price." Amazon reviewer

"I particularly find the disease-based chapters very well organised because they cover not only disease aetiology but also the diagnostic approaches and investigations as well as the management of each condition which makes for excellent revision material for theory and OSCE exams"  Amazon reviewer

"This book helps to simplify learning without compromising the complexity of the content. For a small book it is very comprehensive; covering physiology, clinical essentials, and a number of conditions. It is nicely presented and easy to find what you're looking for without wading through masses of text to find it." Amazon reviewer
