    This review is from: The Medical Staff Services Handbook: Fundamentals and Beyond, Second Edition (Paperback)

    This book is made up from a bunch of separate articles. The information sometimes conflicts between the articles or between some of the terminology used. If you want to study for one of the certificate exams, it might be better just to purchase a exam study tool to prepare for the latest exam. The previous edition of thsi book was just as bad.
