I have a little dilemma. Although I go to a lot of clinics and learn some stuff from textbooks about disease processes I need to up the amount of facts I know. If you asked me 15 causes of hepatitis I'd just look blankly after about 4. It's for this reason I'm taking some advice off a doctor and trying to get my hands on some small revision books that have lots of facts to learn, more than the theory behind the facts.
I realise that "learning lists" has gone out of fashion, but every consultant I've spoken too says that it's actually a great way to make sure you have a broad knowledge base, as long as it's not substituted for other learning.
I was wondering if anyone had tips on revision style textbooks that are great for learning lots of facts?
On that note I'm off to the pub, complete with my Irish passport to validate the fact that I can authenically celebrate St Patrick's day today. Hurrah!
