Compiled by a team of students and practising doctors and consultants from the University of Edinburgh Medical School, Cardiology in a Heartbeat provides practical advice to enable the reader to get to grips with the subject quickly and easily.

This unique author team brings the reader the best of both worlds: the student authors focus on what students need to know whilst the contributions from senior medics ensure the book is accurate and covers the subject completely.

The attractive full-colour layout and short, consistent chapters mean the book is easy to navigate through; this is especially useful when the reader wants to quickly brush up on a particular topic or find an answer to a specific question.

The book boasts an array of design features specifically for students (such as pro-tips, exam essentials, mnemonics, ‘in a nutshell’ sections) to really help the reader understand the subject and, just as importantly, to pass their exams.

The examiner's tips are really useful too! "Really clear, interesting and informative. This book outlines the key details that every medical student should know, but also explains some of the more detailed aspects of each topic. The examiner's tips are really useful too!" Amazon reviewer

Easy to understand and informative "I bought this book as my mum had a heart attack and I wanted to understand how the heart worked, what was going on and what could be done. It was really informative and I found it easy to understand, it was perhaps an unusual book to be sat reading on a cardiac ward but it helped me understand what was going on. I would thoroughly recommend this for anyone wanting to learn more about the heart and cardiology." Amazon reviewer
