    Hey Jane, I felt compelled to leave you a review! I’m really not one to purchase guides but honestly, you saved my butt with this antibiotics guide!!

You rock girl! Thank you!

    Jane, thank you for putting this together. Antibiotics given how many there are, I’ve been stressing thinking of how to even start revising it. All the different side effects, cautions and interactions etc- it’s a lot of stuff! You really lay it all out so so well! This is amazing, keep it up!!!

    Thank you so much Jane for these guides. They are amazing and so helpful for study. The antibiotics guide really helped me in my OSCE. This guide helps make learning all the different antibiotics classes so much easier.

    I just want to say that this guide has helped me massively in understanding the contents because I am currently doing the Bacterial and Fungal infection module at the University of Nottingham and purchasing this has been the best decision!!! This module can be very bulky compared to the others and you have broken the content in such a way that is easy to understand! I can’t wait to purchase more guides from you in the future! Much love to you! xx

    The guide was an amazing help in helping me prepare that topic for the pre reg exam, I would’ve been far more stressed if I didn’t have it. The maths guide was also a great start in helping me prepare for the calcs paper, thank you so much! I highly recommend Jane’s guides to anybody preparing for the final gphc exam.
