Editorial Reviews: Review “Created initially from a medical student’s final revision notes. Concise, balanced, practical and plastic-covered to repel unmentionable liquids and yet containing enough humility and humanity for its voice to be that of a supportive experienced friend rather than a critical professor.” –Professor Max Watson, eHospice –This text refers to the flexibound edition.

Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:
⭐Currently using this book for my IM rotation at the start of my 3rd year of medical school and it has served me very well. A couple of attendings have asked me “what book is that? It looks really useful for a med student.” This book is written if full sentences with useful images (XRs, diagrams, EKGs etc), occasional abbreviations and has much more detail than the Pocket Medicine book that is so popular among Residents (which is nearly entirely abbreviations and shorthand, great for a resident, but intimidating for some students). The style of writing is very readable and actually entertaining, they begin each chapter with a picture, often of a famous Oxford physician in the field to give you some history of that specialty of medicine. Some may think this is superfluous, but the Brits do a good job of keeping the book both interesting and informative this way. It is a surprisingly enjoyable book to simply flip through and learn the important takeaways and history of Brown-Sequard syndrome. The chapter of Eponyms is one of my favorites. The book is slightly bulky in my white coat pocket, but you get used to it, I find myself referring to even before UpToDate often since the Oxford book is actually written for a 3rd/4th year student, and gives a quicker and more direct explanation. There are various idiosyncrasies in how medicine is practiced in the UK compared to the US, the most noticeable of which is how most labs are reported in different units, so make sure to hold on to the bookmark provided that lists the conversions! I write the conversions on applicable pages (like mm Hg to kPa conversion)
⭐Really like this book. Contains lots and lots of information. It’s a very thick book and has a lot of content in it so I’m not sure how useful it is on wards since it would be tedious to look every little detail up. But it’s definitely worth getting to read up on things to review at home.It’s a pretty thick book with small font and cramped wording. So if you don’t like things so tiny then this might not be for you. The pages are not glossy unlike other books. The binding seems a bit flimsy but time will tell how well it holds.
⭐Vinyl covered reference book, not hardback – exactly what I was expecting. Content obviously excellent. Problem is with shipping. Since this is essentially a soft cover book it’s prone to bending and other damage due to shipping. My copy came on time, but the THIN bubble wrap envelope used to ship did not protect the back cover from the obvious puncture that occured with shipping. Since I actually plan to use this book on a daily basis, I’m sure I’m going to put a LOT of milage and abuse on this cover, so it will make no functional difference. BUT, of all the things Amazon ships in way too large boxes to protect them, it would have been a good idea to ship a soft covered book in an appropriately sized box, so I could have had one magnificent day with my new treasured text, before I abuse the cover myself.
⭐Content is great, but unfortunately the links do not work in the kindle edition. It’s a bit disappointing – you can see the table of contents or the index, but then you have to manually go to that page… and there are over 800 pages…
⭐I’m a second year medical student, and I absolutely love this book. Packed full of information, thoughtfully organized and presented, and the anecdotes and jokes scattered throughout make it a joy to flip through
⭐Book arrived in mint condition. Excellent source of information!
⭐Everything as described. A great book for a very good price.
⭐As usual packed full of excellent clinical content. The downside of the Kindle edition is that navigation could be so much better. It would be helpful if there were hyperlinks to other relevant pages – for example from the Index to the appropriate page cited. This would make things much quicker in a busy GP surgery where you have 10 minutes per patient if lucky. Please attend to this for future editions of the OHCM and the other excellent Oxford series.
⭐The book content itself is excellent and as a medical student I find it very useful on wards. The paper quality is good and the content up to date and great as a reference and quick overview of key topics. However, the spine cover of my book has detached from the front cover; this is very annoying as for a book I’ve had two months I didn’t expect this at all! Really didn’t expect this quality from a book I paid over 25 pounds for. Friends who have bought this book from other places don’t seem to have this problem.
⭐Wasn’t very impressed with the product. I paid for a new copy and I’m fairly certain its second hand.Bits stuck to the book, the binding was messed up at the bottom and discilourations/bits worn off the cover and you can tell from the waviness of the pages that first half of the book has very much been used. Refund being sought.
⭐Basically every med student’s bible while on placement. Always keep this near if you’re going on a ward or in a clinic – you’re most likely going to have to wait on someone so might as well read up in the meantime!If you’re getting this, I’d recommend the Oxford Assess and Progress to go along with it – it’s the question version to this book and works well together.
⭐I’ve used an online version of this book before buying it and already knew it’s great, so I’m not reviewing the content here. This book is supposed to be brand new. Instead I got something that looked like it had been dropped on the floor. The edges of the book had some sort of muck/mud embedded into it, and the front of the book had brown specks. I expected better quality from Amazon. Please see photos.
