From the reviews:
“It aims to summarize and review the most important concepts asked on the ABIM certification and recertification examination on cardiovascular diseases. It is intended for physicians in training and practice who are preparing for the cardiology boards. … This is a well-structured, concise review that covers the most high-yield topics in cardiology, with a particular focus on board preparation. It is well positioned to become the backbone of any cardiologist’s preparation for the exams.” (Alban De Schutter, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2014)
