    Summary: This comprehensive board review book prepares pediatric residents, fellows, and practitioners for the pediatric ID board exam, which is given every other year. Each chapter begins with a short summary and contain 15-20 questions with detailed explanations and suggested readings. Written as a complement to the main Moffet's, the board review book's contents are structured in a similar fashion. The review book also includes two new chapters on the principles of immunization and use of antimicrobial agents, which are increasingly important topics in pediatrics and general infectious disease prevention. While the subspecialty itself is small, general pediatricians see a range of infectious disease on a regular basis. Additionally, infectious disease makes up 7% of the general pediatrics board exam, more than any other topic besides wellness and prevention. Provided by publisher.
