In this Article, we have shared a review and a free pdf download link (Google Drive) of Ganong’s Physiology Examination and Board Review 1st Edition.
Based on content from Ganong’s Review of Medical Physiology, Twenty-Fifth Edition, the world’s leading text on human physiology, this authoritative new resource delivers a clear, concise review of the subject’s fundamental concepts, backed by more than 350 Q&A with detailed answer explanations, and numerous full-colour illustrations.
With the goal of creating a targeted, yet comprehensive review of medical physiology for the USMLE® and coursework, the authors of this powerful new resource have streamlined the content of the Ganong’s Review of Medical Physiology, Twenty-Fifth Edition to facilitate study and learning, carefully retaining the most high-yield concepts and illustrations.
The authors have skillfully reworked the self-study questions from the parent text so they are consistent with the clinical vignette style found on the USMLE®, and have also included many new questions. In addition, every question comes with a comprehensive explanation of why the correct answer is right or wrong, and why the distractors are wrong. This fosters a conceptual understanding of physiology, rather than simply reinforcing memorization. You will also find valuable study aids such as learning objectives, key terms, and end-of-chapter summaries and questions.
