New books received this week

Essential skills for dentists / Peter A. Mossey (ed). Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2006.

The core function of the book is to facilitate learning and by clearly defining the learning outcomes, using checklists for in-course formative assessment of defined clinical competencies and the use of mind maps to facilitate revision, the book aims to integrate the complementary relationship between learning and assessment.

Atlas of craniomaxillofacial trauma / Roszalina Ramli (et al). London : Imperial College Press, 2011.

This is a full-colour illustrative textbook written by highly experienced consultants from two different continents - Asia and Europe - which sets out to compare the two possibly dissimilar scenarios of maxillofacial trauma in relation to the epidemiology and aetiology of the two regions. All cases presented in this atlas are from the authors’ personal experience during their day-to-day management of patients.
