Excellent Board Review (USMLE Step 1, NCLX-RN, PANCE/PANRE)
"There are very few books that successfully walk the fine line between information overload and gross oversimplification. Berkowitz's Clinical Pathophysiology Made Ridiculously Simple manages to pull it off admirably well and will be a welcome change for scores of overwhelmed medical students." David E. Newman-Toker, MD, Director, Student Clerkships in Neurology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
"If you read one book during your preclinical years, read this! I've yet to come across a more clear and concise introduction to clinical pathophysiology. This book is a solid foundation for medical, nursing, and pharmacy students who want to understand human disease and treatments from first principles. I recommend it to anyone who aspires to take great care of their patients." Andrew D. Levin, MD/PhD candidate, Harvard Medical School "
A thorough and insightful approach to basic pathophysiology, this book helps its readers develop a strong conceptual foundation of 'how' and 'why' disease happens, a skill that will far outlast memorization done for the boards and even provide a great review for residents and attending physicians." Aarti Sekhar, MD, PGY-2, Radiology, Beth Israel Hospital
"This is absolutely brilliant -- things have never been more clear. It's everything you were supposed to learn in 1st year but didn't quite get, and everything in 2nd year you need for the boards. This is the most clear, well organized review text for the boards I've every seen!" Jasmine Pedroso, 2nd Year Medical Student, UCLA Geffen School of Medicine
