5 Stars, 99/100 “This is a comprehensive and useful resource for pathology residents wishing to review and solidify their knowledge of anatomic pathology. The book is somewhat unique, at least among books for the U.S. exam, in that it provides both short answer questions as well as multiple choice. These help guide review of topics that could be featured in many exam questions in a variety of different ways, providing a high-yield resource.”
