Reviews - What do customers think about Practical Guide to Medical Student Assessment?
Concise and a good starting point Jul 28, 2008
I'm a busy medical practioner. This book is a concise guide which is what I needed to assist in assessing students. It is well referenced which allows those who wish to delve deeper - in fact some references are repeated - but a minor quibble!!
