Books for MS3 Surgery
I would recommend the books below for the third year medical student on a surgery rotation. Blueprints was a superficial review of all subjects, while Essentials gave a thorough explanation of surgical conditions. Sabiston provides a good pocket reference. Surgical Recall is excellent at the hospital or in lecture situations. The basic important questions surgeons will ask can be found in Surgical Recall; however, this book lacks any depth to the coverage of its subjects. Appleton & Lange's Surgery Review provides great questions with explanations. Combining several books for studying will provide a good foundation for MS3 surgery.
