"Veterinary Clinical Pathology Secrets is part of the Secret Series? of specialty review texts intended for veterinary students, practitioners, and residents. Content includes hematology, lymphoid neoplasms, acid base disorders, serum chemistries, urinalysis, cytopathology, and nonmammalian (avian and reptilian) clinical pathology. It follows a question-reply format, with questions asked and then answered via short paragraphs, lists, and/or tables. This serves the book's intent well, by providing focused, easy to absorb, packets of information. The book's content is generally time-tested basic clinical pathology drawn from larger veterinary clinical pathology and internal medicine textbooks and review papers. This book is not meant as a primary text, but rather as a review, and will be appreciated as such by veterinary students preparing for state boards, non clinical pathology residents preparing for specialty boards, and clinical pathology residents in their 1st or 2nd year of training. Practitioners and pathologists may want to consider this book for its sizable section on avian and reptilian clinical pathology." - Veterinary Pathology 42:397-399 (2005)
