5th Edition of General and systematic pathology : with STUDENT CONSULT Access [Paperback]

James C. E. Underwood MD FRCPath FRCP FMedSci Professor (Author), Simon S Cross MD FRCPath Dr. (Author) About £35 new

“Most useful in the textbook is the inclusion of summary boxes which help to point out the key messages of each of the chapters...a really great way to test my knowledge at the end of a chapter and ensure that I hadn't missed any of the key points."

As an alternative you could also get an earlier edition [3rd for instance] on Amazon for £2-3. This would be more than adequate.
