Reviews

"I have no doubt that OHMS is one of the best books I have ever bought." - Medical Student, University of Edinburgh

"I would certainly recommend this book for clinical students who want to refresh some basic sciences later in their education. This is a reliable reference book which I think will serve me very well into my clinical years and I shall keep by my desk for those moments where I need to find a long-ago learnt and now-forgotten fact!" - Cambridge Medicine Journal
