The Book Is A Comprehensive Textbook For Medical Students. The Practicals Are Explained In Simple Language. The Emphasis Is On Understanding The Principle Of The Experiment. At The End Of Every Chapter, There Is A Viva Section. The Unique Feature Of This Book Is The Ospe Section (Objective Structured Practical Examination). This Has Become A Part Of The Examination In Several Universities And Is Aimed At Familiarising The Student With The Practical (Real, In Use) Aspects Of Each Topic.
