According to the publisher, the app combines the two best-selling review guides for surgical residents and includes Q&A versions of Greenfield's Surgery and General Surgery Board Review. Its five test-prep modules can be purchased either as a set or individually. The modules are meant to be a study aid for certification, precertification and ABSITE.
