  • This successful revision aid for students of veterinary nursing has been updated in line with changes in the S/NVQ syllabus and the third edition of Veterinary Nursing (Lane/Cooper)
  • In-depth answers provide clear rationales and explanations for both correct and incorrect choices
  • Structured around the format of the main textbook to enable the student to undertake a planned course of study or revision
  • Self-assessment provides the student with a clear understanding of their level of competence which will lead to increased success in both assessment and examination
  • Reflecting changes to the National Occupational Standards, the new edition of this popular self-test guide includes revised content, new material, and an additional discussion on why an incorrect answer might have been chosen and why confusion could have arisen in the reader's mind. A companion to Lane and Cooper's Veterinary Nursing, this practical resource follows the structure of the main text and includes answers that function as mini-tutorials, with clear rationales for the correct answer and learning opportunities for the student.
