Published Reviews

"It is well organized, well presented, and really a useful resource for review by a pediatric resident preparing to take the pediatric boards for the first time or a pediatrician studying for the recertification examination. The information is clearly and concisely presented and a valuable resource for pediatricians in training as well as pediatricians. Highly recommended."
