Human Embryology: The Ultimate USMLE Step 1 Review
This book is a valuable tool for enabling students to recall the many details regarding human development and congenital diseases, and it is particularly valuable for those preparing for licensing exams. Copiously illustrated, each chapter consists of a singe page of illustrations coupled with a single page of focused, high-yield text. After each of the book's three parts, a series of practice questions tests the reader's recollection and understanding.
