    I'm having to decide to buy one of the following books:
    Kumar and Clark's Clinical medicine and Davidsons Principles of Medicine.

    Any comments on which one I should buy?

    hey..

    from my experience..

    davidson has a better presentation, and features alot of good explainations of pathophysiology, tx, mx, etc..

    Kumar and Clarks has more details relatively. But, ppl complain its arrangement of topics are abit haphazard.

    u should thumb through both books...

    Both books are good..i'm using davidsons

    It's all about individual preference, like whether you like the text heavy Ganong for physio, or another book with lotsa pictures
