This book rocks so much. It understands that you're tired and hungry and your cardiology exam is tomorrow and you really don't want to read five unnecessary pages on the varying presentations of Wolff-Parkinson-White trying to figure out how to ID it.
Just as clear and easy as Dale Dubin, but more of a narrative and more detail, especially concerning diagnostic criteria. Case studies provide quick comic relief as well as a chance to dig deep and apply what you know. I was functionally adequate at 12 leads as far as finding infarcts, but now I feel I have more of a mastery of them, and some good information on finding evidence of other heart conditions.
I'm a medical student. My instructors recommended we order Dubin's EKG book. It is good, but this book is better. It contains more information, has clearer explanations, and is all around better. You will not get more information unless you get an electrophysiology textbook. I would strongly recommend this book.
