What students are saying about the book:

'To begin, the book was amazing and very well written.  It showed what medical school is really like, unlike what other books or blogs tend to say.  It is able to show the ups and downs very well and how to make the most of everything.  I really like the parts of the books that detail what resources are helpful and how to approach the different aspects of medical school, such as OSCE's and written exams.  The footnotes are also a great addition to the book to indicate where to get more information.  In addition, the tables, comics, top tips and summary boxes make the book really interesting.'

'I've finally had chance to have a read of the book and I am a big fan. It is full of useful tips, hints and advice with the usual dose of medic humour.' 

'The book overall is very detailed and covers a lot which is great for medical students - from self care & reassurance that the feeling of information overload is completely normal! Through to tips and mnemonics for OSCES and history taking which I thought was invaluable.'

'I absolutely love this book! It's so refreshingly honest about the whole medical school experience and gives you all the practical pieces of advice/titbits it often takes you years to work out- a true surviving medical school 101. I love the fact that it's written from recent personal experience with a few anecdotes thrown in.' 

'From what I have read, it looks brilliant. I've shown a few friends as well, and they were all impressed as well. In particular I like the humour - it helps to break the information up, but is also quite genuine and not condescending'
