Gynaecology Illustrated pdf

Gynaecology Illustrated 6th Edition – This is a visual presentation of Gynaecology aimed at undergraduate medical students. The highly effective format is ideal for examination preparation. Each page covers one topic with concise text and associated diagrams. Previously under the authorship of Hart and Norman, the new author has comprehensively revised the sixth edition of this very popular student text.

The titles in the illustrated series are valued by students because of their visual presentation of information and are particularly effective for examination preparations. For the more traditional courses this book will fulfil the role of a course text; for problem-based courses it will be an excellent resource for problem-solving exercises.
