The Ultimate Medical Mnemonic Comic Book is a FUN & EFFECTIVE way to learn and remember the medical disorders we often forget. This book is designed for physicians, residents, physician assistants, nurses, nursing students and other medical personnel. What separates this book apart from the traditional mnemonic concept is that the mnemonics are incorporated in a sentence that explains the disease so the pathophysiology is part of the mnemonics, leading to a deeper, "second level" understanding of the concepts. In addition the visual cartoons helps to stimulate long term retention for easy recall. Also available in Color.

Written by a professor of physician assistant programs at two established universities, this study guide is formulated for physician assistant students and practitioners to increase knowledge and retention of important clinical information. While the primary purpose of this book is to serve as a comprehensive review of the material for the Physician Assistant National Certification Exam (PANCE), it's also a great tool for physician assistant students to understand commonly encountered diseases while on rotations during the clinical year, and as an adjunctive study guide during the didactic year. The book's comprehensible structure maximizes information retention with clear explanations of difficult topics. Visual learning is enhanced with such features as bold and italicized essential information, easy-to-read tables, and graphs and charts that allow you to compare and contrast topics commonly grouped together on exam questions. Clinical-correlation bullet points help connect related topics in different organ systems. Practicing physician assistants will also find this study guide to be a time-saving aid in preparing for the recertification exam (PANRE), as well as an excellent quick-reference resource to have on hand in their practice.
Provides a comprehensive collection of mnemonics covering various aspects of the undergraduate syllabus. The mnemonics cover all aspects of medicine including conditions, medications, clinical chemistry and haematology.

Anatomy Studymate explains human anatomy the way it is meant to be explained, by maps and mnemonics instead of complicated pictures and long paragraphs. This book has 5 chapters covering the main regions of the body: upper limb, lower limb, thorax, abdomen & pelvis and head & neck. It includes 235 topics further divided into 131 easy to remember mnemonics, 51 maps for a simple diagrammatic view of various anatomical structures, 30 tables summarizing almost all the muscles of the human body and finally 23 summary verses for extremely important topics that couldn't fit in one of the previous 3 categories, and yet can not be ignored. This book is simply my study notes during my undergraduate study, then the exams for the master's degree in surgery, and finally the step A exam of the membership of the royal college of surgeons (MRCS). And don't worry, I passed them all, so you can depend on this book for a valid reason. Anatomy Studymate is not meant to replace anatomy text books. Unless coffee mate was meant to replace coffee. Think of it like a side dish, that can't feed you alone. Yet, it adds a flavor to your meal. Ok!! Enough coffee and dinner talk. Bottom line, this book can really help you in many ways. When you study a topic for the first time, it can offer you a simpler -or sometimes deeper insights. Writing the mnemonics in your main source next to each topic is a good idea. Also during revision, I think that condensing the important topics of anatomy in 150 low-text and details-free pages can be helpful. At last during your postgraduate study, this book can be particularly helpful to remember the highlights and the hot topics, which are always the core of exams like masters, PhD and even MRCS.
